Burnham Carnival Club's charity collection float starts festive tour

The carnival season is over until next year, but that's not stopped kind-hearted members of Burnham's Hillview Carnival Club building this illuminated cart to transport Santa around the streets of the town to raise cash for charity.

The club's members have begun a 15-day tour of Burnham and Highbridge's streets, towing Santa on a mobile sleigh, while collecting donations for two good causes.

Mark Bishop, Hillview's Chairman, told "We started earlier this week and have had a good response so far, with all funds going to Musgrove Hospital Children's Unit and Cancer Research."

The club hopes to visit every street in Burnham and Highbridge before Christmas. Its sleigh is accompanied by cheery festive music to ensure residents don't miss its visit.
