£9,400 collected for charity during Burnham-On-Sea Carnival
total of £9,400 was collected for local charities during
Monday night's Highbridge and Burnham Carnival - down slightly
on last year.
Andrew Bryant from Burnham Lions Club, who was among the collectors
at the successful event, told Burnham-On-Sea.com the figure was
down £500 on last year.
"Considering the poor weather, the slightly lower turnout
and the poor economic climate, this is a reasonable result,"
The cash will be used to help pay insurance costs for next year's
carnival, and the rest will be split between local charities.
