Lions boosts town pensioner's triathlon fundraising
A sporty Burnham-On-Sea pensioner received a cheque from Burnham
Lions Club on Wednesday evening (July 7th), having completed the
town's triathlon last month.
year-old Arthur Gilbert, pictured, has raised almost £1,000
for charity this year by completing two Burnham Triathlons - one
in April and another in June.
Lions Club is one of several groups sponsoring his fundraising
for Musgrove Leukaemic Group Somerset and on Wednesday its members
handed over £100 to him at the town's Ritz Social Club,
Walsh, Burnham and District Lions Club President, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"Arthur is a real legend and so inspirational - we were delighted
to sponsor him again this year."
