Burnham-On-Sea Mayor hands over donations to local good causes
and Highbridge's Mayor handed out cheques to his two chosen charities
of the year on Monday night (May 16th).
The Friends of Burnham Hospital and BARB (Burnham Area Rescue
Boat) each received a share of the proceeds from the Mayor's recent
fundraising Royal Wedding street party, as covered here.
Cllr Michael Clarke presented £810.54 each to Tony Deahl,
Chairman of The Friends of Burnham Hospital, and Steve Perks,
BARB's Operations Manager.
A further £100 was also presented to Burnham Army Cadets
in recognition of the work of the Mayor's Official Cadet, Ben
Rogers, over the past year.
Michael and his wife, Maria, thanked all those who had supported
the fundraising street party during April - especially the Victoria
Hotel's Martin and Dee Lloyd.
