Local groups benefit from Puriton fundraising bike ride

Burnham-On-Sea's hovercraft charity and a local group of brownies have been given a financial boost this week with the donation of hundreds of pounds following a fundraising bike ride.

Over fifty motorbikes took part in the 160-mile Pasty Run from Puriton, near Bridgwater, to Swanage in Dorset during September.

The event, which is now in its fourth year, raised £430 which was split between BARB and Puriton 2nd Brownies.

Delighted members of both groups gathered at Puriton village hall, as pictured, to receive their cheques from organisers.

Organisers Paul and Julie Vearncombe told "The bike ride was a great day out and it is good to see the money going to two very good local groups."

Brown Owl Denise Egginton and Divisional Commander Carol Spencer received the cheque on behalf of the Brownies, while BARB's Mark Newman and Dave Bailey received the cheque towards the rescue hovercrafts.
