In photos: Pub quiz fun raises funds for Burnham-On-Sea hovercrafts

The Burnham-On-Sea charity that runs the town's rescue hovercrafts received a cash boost on Tuesday evening (January 27th) when Burnham's Adult Learning Centre held a fundraising pub quiz.

A crowd of supporters flocked to The Reed's Arms on Burnham seafront for the event, which was held in aid of BARB, the Burnham Area Rescue Boat.

"We're delighted to have raised over £120 for such an excellent local charity," said co-organiser Jane Biggs.

BARB is a registered charity that operates the life-saving Spirit Of Lelaina and Light of Elizabeth hovercrafts and an inshore rescue boat. It is run by unpaid volunteers and is funded entirely by donations.
