Brean Leisure Park hands out £15,000 to local good causes
Leisure Park has handed out almost £15,000 to local charities
and good causes over the past year.
Fundraising events this year have included a Golf Pro Am Tournament,
which raised £1,800 for the Injured Jockeys fund, £500
for St Margaret's Hospice and £500 for the Alzheimer Society.
The park's pig and donkey races which took place over the school
summer holidays proved to be a great fundraiser with £3,440
raised for Burnham-On-Sea St John Ambulance and another £3,440
for Burnham-On-Sea Sea Cadets. Holiday Resort Unity Holiday Home
Owners also raised £1,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness.
A further £1,000 was raised for the Alzheimers Society
and a sponsored walk along Brean Beach and Brean Down in late
September brought in over £900, while raffles organised
by The Tavern Country Music Club raised a further £3,000.
Finally, £1,000 was also raised for the Air Ambulance. And
Burnham rescue hovercraft charity BARB also attended all four
of the park's firework displays during 2010 to make collections.
House told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We're very happy to help
local charities in the area and put something back into our community."
