£3,660 raised at Burnham music and fun day in memory of Dylan Cecil

A fundraising music and fun day was held in Burnham on Saturday (September 29th) in memory of Dylan Cecil, the four year-old boy who died in August after falling from the town's jetty.

The 11-hour fundraiser was held outside The Dunstan House in Love Lane and raised £3,660 for the town's search and rescue teams - BARB, The Coastguard Association, RNLI and SARbot.

Along with childrens activities and an auction, there was comedy from Buster and live music from local groups Ping & I, So Watt, Kastrow, The Ovation Brothers, Snatch & Co, Vermin, The Ginger Hitlas and Riverbrew.

Organiser Dusica Roberts told she was pleased with how the event went. "As soon as I heard about what had happened to Dylan I wanted to help," she said.

"This event was a positive way to raise funds for the rescue services involved in the search for Dylan. We're grateful to everyone who supported and attended the event today and thank the Dunstan House for providing their facilities."
