Community choir's concert is music to the ears of Burnham charity

More than £500 was raised for Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercraft charity during a special community concert this week.

Over 150 people attended the Mudlarks Community Choir concert in the town's Catholic Church on Monday in aid of BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat).

The evening included a polished programme of upbeat songs that entertained and absorbed the capacity audience.

"We're delighted that the evening raised a grand total of £522.70 for BARB - a superb amount for a great local charity," said Peter Olsen, one of the choir's leaders.

During the evening, Burnham's Mayor, Cllr Ken Smout, also presented the choir with a special community award in recognition of the volunteer work that choir does in the area, as pictured. Jules and Peter Olsen are shown receiving the award on behalf of the group.
