Mayor supports day of fundraising at Burnham-On-Sea pottery shop

A Burnham-On-Sea pottery shop owner who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis held a day of fundraising at her seafront shop on Saturday (March 21st) to raise money for a charity that helps fellow sufferers.

Anya Burridge of Purrr-fect Pottery on the Esplanade held a special raffle and also donated £1 from every piece of pottery bought towards the West of England MS Therapy Centre.

Burnham's Mayor and Mayoress, Peter and Jo Burridge-Clayton, were the VIP guests who helped announce the raffle winners.

"I am helping to raise money for the therapy centre in Nailsea because I have MS myself and have used it many times," Anya told

"The centre provides support and relief of symptoms to people with Multiple Sclerosis and their supporters."

"When I got diagnosed 10 years ago, my family and myself were devastated. Without the centre to visit, I don't know what would of happened."

Raffle prizes were donated by Purrr-fect Pottery, Treasure Chest, Seabreeze, Tesco, Esplanade Fish Bar, Sentiments, Somerfield, Sanders Garden World, Zalshah Indian Restaurant, Asda and others.
