Busy Bank Holiday fete raises £4,000 for Burnham-On-Sea hospital

Thousands of pounds was raised for Burnham-On-Sea Hospital's League Of Friends on Bank Holiday Monday (August 31st) when the group held its annual summer fete.

The town's Manor Gardens were full to the brim with large crowds for an afternoon of traditional stalls, fairgound games and entertainment.

Among the many Burnham-On-Sea groups taking part and raising money were the Lions, Rotary Club, WI, Coastguards, BARB, RNLI, Scouts, Moose Lodge and the Royal British Legion.

League Of Friends Chairman Tony Dheal told "It's been a great afternoon. We saw an excellent turnout of people despite the dull weather and have raised around £4,000. Many thanks go to everyone who supported the event."
