Burnham charity receives £610 from Somerset Motorcycle Group

A group of Somerset motorcycling enthusiasts who have held a series of fundraising bike rides across the county have this week handed over the proceeds to a Burnham-On-Sea charity.

The Somerset Motorcycle Group raised £610 for BARB, the charity that operates Burnham's two rescue hovercrafts.

The group's members handed over their bumper cheque to grateful crewmembers from BARB at Highbridge's Bristol Bridge Inn, as pictured here.

It comes after several fundraising bike runs were held during the summer and autumn where members rode across the region and finished on Burnham seafront.

Somerset Motorcycle Group's Norman Templeman said: "Our members have enjoyed taking part in several bike runs this year and are delighted to be able to hand over this sum to BARB."
