Fundraising beach walk from Burnham to Brean raises £700 for charity

Non-stop sunshine provided perfect conditions for the 25 walkers who took part in a fundraising beach walk from Burnham-On-Sea to Brean on Sunday (May 27th) to support families affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

The annual Brean Challenge comprised of a 15 mile walk from Burnham Pier to Brean Down and back.

Organiser Mike Barsby told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We had 25 walkers and most had family members or friends that are affected in some way by Alzheimer's or Dementia."

"It was a lovely mixture of ages, ranging from teens to seniors, and a wonderful selection of enthusiastic dogs! The walk will raise around £700 for the Alzheimer's Society. The weather was perfect with a welcome breeze from behind us on our return."
