Three more good causes in Burnham area receive boost from Asda

Three good causes in the Burnham-On-Sea area have this week benefited from a fundraising scheme at Asda's Highbridge store.

The supermarket is encouraging customers to vote for their favorite groups by dropping tokens into collecting boxes - and those that attract the most receive a cash donation.

BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) received the most tokens during September and one of its crew, Roger Flower, is pictured receiving a £100 donation from the store's Community Life Champion, Kim Blyth.

GirlGuiding Somerset Mexico 2013 and Highbridge Dreamscheme also received £25 each for taking part in the vote. All three groups were grateful for the donations.

Kim told "Asda strives to support the local community around each store and get the whole community involved. This allows many different causes the chance to not only raise funds, but also generate awareness."

To propose a local group or charity, pick up a nomination form which can be found on the community board in the foyer of the Highbridge store.
