Brean holiday park raises over £2,000 for Burnham rescue charity

Holidaymakers at a Brean caravan park have this week handed over a bumper cheque to the charity that runs Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercrafts.

A summer of fundraising at Diamond Farm Holiday Park has raised £2,275 towards the running costs of BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat).

The bumper cheque was handed over to the charity's crewmembers at the campsite on Saturday.

Jayne Collins from the Diamond Farm Fundraisers said: "We are delighted to have raised such a big sum for BARB, which does a fantastic job in Brean and Burnham in helping to keep our beaches safe. It's been a tough year to raise the money given the current economic climate, so our thanks go to everyone who has helped us."

The group raised the cash by holding a number of fundraising events at the holiday park and Brean's Beachcomber Inn.

BARB Chairman Mark Newman thanked the group, saying: "We are hugely grateful to everyone at Diamond Farm for their fantastic support, which dates back over many years."
