£260 raised during Burnham-On-Sea 'Brew For The Few' fundraiser

Burnham-On-Sea's Mayor and Mayoress were among dozens of local residents who helped raise money for the Royal Air Forces Association during a special coffee morning in the town on Saturday (June 25th).

The Burnham branch of the RAFA organised its 'Brew For The Few' event outside The Railway in the High Street and collected £260.

Refreshments were provided for a small sum towards the Wings Appeal Charity.

Burnham's Mayor Michael Clarke and his wife, Mayoress Maria Clarke, gave their support, along with County Councillor John Woodman and several town councillors.

Organiser Brian Mudge told "Over 200 fundraising tea and coffee events have been held across the UK to raise money for the RAF Association's work of supporting current and former RAF personnel and their families."

He added: "Everyone has been extremely supportive and generous and we would like to say a big thank you for all those who participated."

The 'Brew for the Few' initiative is named after Churchill's famous speech which referred to "never in the field of human conflict was much owed by so many to so few", commemorating the bravery of RAF personnel in WWII.
