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 "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."
