Photo special: Burnham-On-Sea's Lakeside Club raises laughs and cash

The final sum raised for charity during a night of entertainment at a Burnham-On-Sea club was more than £1,600, it has been confirmed this week.

Tich and Sue Williams, the managers of Lakeside in Westfield Road, organised the special evening of music, comedy and magic in aid of the Somerset-based charity, St Margaret's Hospice.

Scores of supporters filled the main hall to enjoy the evening - and help contribute to a huge sum of £1,624.

Vikki Driscoll and Martin James are shown performing a magic trick; while vocalist Clare demonstrated her golden voice (top), and Vikki Driscoll is also pictured playing the electric violin.

"Buster, the comedian, really was on to form and everyone had a great night. It was a great that such a large sum was raised for such a great cause," said one of the organisers.

St Margaret's Somerset Hospice is a local charity that's committed to providing specialist care, advice, support and respite to patients and their families living in Somerset and parts of neighbouring areas.
