keeps carnival spirit going in run-up to Christmas
carnival season may be over until next year, but that's not stopped
generous members of Burnham's Hillview Carnival Club building
this mini illuminated cart to transport Santa around the streets
of the town to raise cash for charity.
The club's members have begun a fortnight-long tour of Burnham
and Highbridge's streets, towing Santa on a mobile sleigh, while
collecting donations for two good causes.
Mark Bishop, Hillview's Cart Captain, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The icy conditions had put the tour in doubt, but we've
wrapped up with a couple of extra layers of clothing to do the
tour and have been welcomed by residents so far."
The club hopes to raise hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research
and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance over the next few days.
The sleigh is accompanied by cheery festive music to ensure residents
don't miss its visit.
