Christmas comes early in Brean for fundraising campers!
of holidaymakers in Brean got in a festive mood this week to raise
hundreds of pounds for Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercraft charity
BARB by holding a summer display of Christmas lights!
and tents at Diamond Farm Holiday Park were decorated with displays
of festival tinsel and inflatable snowmen during the unseasonal
fundraiser. There was even a visit by Santa on a horse-drawn carriage!
Fran Lear told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "A lot of fun was had
by everyone. The Christmas displays attracted plenty of support
and we were really pleased to raise £670 in just one day.
We had a great response and thank everyone who helped."
tombola, raffle and collections were also held by the fundraisers
at Brean's Beachcomber Inn for BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat),
which operates two life-saving hovercraft and an inshore rescue
Chairman Mark Newman said: "We are hugely grateful to the
Diamond Farm team for their ongoing support of BARB - they always
come up with novel, fun ways to raise money."
