£1,000 boost for two local groups from Burnham-On-Sea councillor

Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercraft charity is among two local groups to share a funding boost of more than £1,000 this week.

The money was raised at the Tyntesfield Masonic Lodge annual Ladies Night, held at Cadbury House Hotel near Bristol, earlier this year.

Burnham town councillor and Lodge Master Michael Clarke has presented £520 to BARB's Operations Manager Steve Perks (pictured right).

And a further £520 cheque was handed over to Keith Eccleston from St Michael's Cheshire nursing Home at Axbridge, as below.

"As Master of the Lodge, and a resident and town councillor of Burnham, it was great to be able to put something into local charities," said Michael.

He added: "Hopefully we can make a further commitment to raise more for both these worthy causes."
