carnival club receives £1,000 boost from Lions
Burnham-On-Sea's Hillview Carnival Club received a welcome
financial boost on Wednesday evening (June 1st) when it was presented
with a donation from the town's Lions Club.
Burnham Lions handed over £1,000 to the team from Hillview,
who are already busy at work planning their entry for this year's
Lion Andrew Bryant told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are delighted
to support Hillview, which is Burnham's only carnival club. The
carnival brings a lot of enjoyment to many thousands of people
and Hillview deserves support in these difficult economic times."
The money was raised partly during Burnham Lions Club's recent
river duck race.
