Burnham-On-Sea 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 carnival season.

Lion Andrew Bryant told "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.
