Burnham-On-Sea club's hearty lunches raise cash for childrens charity

Hundreds of pounds was raised for the charity Cots For Tots when generous members of Burnham-On-Sea's Inner Wheel Club held a fundraising ploughman's lunch on Wednesday (June 2nd).

The event, held at Burnham Baptist Church in College Street was well attended and is expected to have raised a good sum for the Baby Intensive Care Unit in St Margaret's Hospital in Bristol.

Cots for Tots is the Inner Wheel President Sandra Squires' charity of the year and several fundraising events are being planned.

"The Charity Cots for Tots appeal is for the premature or seriously ill Baby Intensive Care Unit in St Margaret's Hospital in Bristol. It has been set up in order to fund a vital expansion at St Michael's Neonatal Ward, to help newborn babies in need of special care and to support their families," she told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The group is also getting matched funding from Barclays Bank on all the monies it raises for the charity.
