Cash boost awarded to Burnham-On-Sea disabilities club

A group that helps people with learning disabilities across the Burnham-On-Sea area has this week been handed a financial boost of hundreds of pounds.

County Councillor John Woodman has given the Burnham and Highbridge Gateway Club a cheque for £500 using money from his council community fund.

He presented the cheque to grateful club members during their AGM, held in Burnham's BAY Centre, as pictured here.

The club - which last year celebrated its 30th anniversary - provides social activities for local adults with learning disabilities.

Club leader Barbara Thorogood told "We're very grateful to John for choosing us for this money, which will go towards the cost of providing new facilities for our members."
