Rally organisers give Highbridge Dreamscheme a boost
The organisers of Brean's rally handed over a total of £2,460
to two good causes during the event's annual presentation night
on Thursday (February 17th).
Youngsters and leaders from Highbridge's Dreamscheme travelled
to the Commodore Hotel in Weston to receive a share of the money
from organiser Rod McKenna, as pictured above, while the remainder
went to national charity Help For Heroes.
follows a very successful rally last
month when dozens of cars roared around Brean Leisure Park
over the course of two days.
Jason Adams, leader of Highbridge Dreamscheme, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We are very grateful to Rod and the Brean Rally team for
this fantastic donation which will help towards funding several
of our activities over the summer holidays. The children had a
great time visiting the rally last month."
Rod McKenna added: "We are happy to help both these deserving
causes. Help For Heroes does a great job in supporting our injured
troops, while the Dreamscheme is a great organisation that does
a superb job at a local level."
The money was split with £1983 going to Help For Heroes
and £477 to Highbridge Dreamscheme.
