'Rock and chips' concert raises over £800 for Burnham charities

Almost £800 was raised for charities in the Burnham-On-Sea area during a fundraising concert at the town's Princess Theatre on Saturday (July 7th).

A capacity audience attended the 'Rock and Chips' event at the theatre, organised by Burnham's Moose International Lodge.

The event featured music from popular band Kyotie, plus table-served fish and chips supplied by a local chip shop.

"The enthusiastic audience were not disappointed. Kyotie played to a capacity audience who sat at tables arranged cabaret style," organiser Terry Cornelius told

An extra treat was a short set from talented local vocalist Bruce Hudson, at the end of the refreshments break.

The result was a profit of almost £800 to be shared between the BAY Centre Roof Fund and local Moose charities.

Terry added: "This was an amazing night. The bar was kept busy for most of the evening, and we have raised a lot of money for our charities."
