Burnham-On-Sea runner hands over £1,250 to lifeboat crew

Crewmembers at Burnham-On-Sea's RNLI lifeboat station have said thanks to a town runner who raised over £1,200 for them.

Running enthusiast Jason Vickers ran the London Marathon to raise £2,500 that was split between the RNLI and MS Society.

On Sunday morning (June 13th), Jason presented a cheque for £1,250 to RNLI Station Chairman Graham Wills, as pictured here.

Lifeboat Station Chairman Graham Wills told "We applaud and thank Jason for his efforts. The money will go a long way to equipping and training our volunteer crews."
