raised during Burnham-On-Sea 'Brew
For The Few' fundraiser
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).
Burnham branch of the RAFA organised its 'Brew For The Few' event
outside The Railway in the High Street and collected £260.
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.
Brian Mudge told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "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."
'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.
