Burnham-On-Sea book shop raises more than £6,000 for charity

More than £6,000 has been raised for charity in just six months at a book shop in Burnham-On-Sea.

The town's Rotary Club operated the popular store at the former Thresher's Wine Shop in College Street over the summer and autumn.

It has just closed this week and the volunteers were delighted to find the earnings had reached a total of £6,200.

After some expenses for electricity and rates, the remainder of the cash will be distributed to Rotary local charities and good causes.

Jane Gibbs, Club Service Committee Chairman, told "The Club would like to thank everyone who has supported this venture, by donating and purchasing the books."

"The club is also grateful to Threshers and their agents, Abbott & Frost, for making the premises available."
