In photos: Newly-formed Burnham Coastguard Association holds quiz night

A new Burnham-On-Sea group set-up to help Coastguards, their widows and families in times of severe hardship held its first fundraising event on Tuesday evening (February 11th).

The Burnham-On-Sea branch of the Coastguard Association held a quiz night at the Somerset and Dorset pub on the town's High Street, which was attended by over 100 people.

Branch Chairman Ian Jefferies told he was pleased with the turn-out:
"We're delighted to have got such great support at our first event, which raised the sum of £376.06."

The Association aims to help serving and retired Coastguards, their widows and dependents should they suffer hardship, distress or illness or injury.

Full membership is for ex/serving Coastguards but anyone can join as associate members. Membership costs £10 per year, for which you will receive a diary and car sticker and a magazine. Ian can be contacted on 07724995631.
