a fifth year, Steve and Hilary Cox served up hundreds of teas
to the general public - including Burnham's MP Tessa Munt - at
their home, Newcote in Brent Road, to raise cash for the worthy
Hilary Cox told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I'm so proud to tell
you that we have managed to raise over £2,000 in our 5th
annual cream tea!"
"Both the cake stall and the plant stall were well supported
by locals and visitors alike, and managed to beat last years'
totals to raise this magnificent sum, and due to generous donations
from individuals, and local businesses alike, we were able to
realise a superb result in just three hours."
"The support of local people continues to amaze us - both
with the help on the day, and the commitment from our friends
and neighbours during the weeks before the event."
"We couldn't achieve such a result without the support of
everyone. We would like to say a huge 'thank you' to everyone.
During the past five years that we have held this event, we have
raised over £7,000 for the charity."
"We would like to thank everyone who supported us, and those
who have given so generously both today and in the past - we appreciate
all your help."
