donations bring a smile to Burnham children
at Homes in Sedgemoor have raised almost £200 to buy sweets
for local children in the Burnham and Highbridge area this Christmas.
The team have collected £180 throughout December by holding
various activities including a raffle, charity auction, and a
casual clothing day.
of the money has been put towards topping
up the Tenants Welfare Fund and also towards buying
the sweets. The Homes in Sedgemoor team wrapped and labled them,
then handed them over to Burnham and Highbridge Rotary Club for
distribution, as pictured above.
Rotary Club have been delivering the sweets to children at local
Womens Refuge centres, where families escaping domestic
violence will be spending Christmas.
Kim Sugg from Homes In Sedgemoor told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Staff
here are enormously charitable and committed to our tenants and
people in the local area. The fundraising has been great fun for
us and we also hope has helped to spread a little extra festive
spirit to families and children in the area!"
