Three good causes in Burnham-On-Sea area receive boost from Asda

Three good causes in the Burnham-On-Sea area have this week benefited from a fundraising scheme at Asda's Highbridge store.

The supermarket encourages customers to vote for their favourite groups by dropping tokens into collecting boxes - and those that attract the most receive a cash donation.

The RNLI received the most tokens in the latest month and its representatives, Jan Pearce and Mary Summers, are pictured receiving a £100 donation from the store's Community Life Champion, Kim Blyth this week.

Runners-up were Parkinsons UK and Help The Child, who received £25 each. All three groups said they were grateful for the donations.

Kim told "Asda strives to support the local community around each store and get the whole community involved. This allows many different causes the chance to not only raise funds, but also generate awareness."

To propose a local group or charity, pick up a nomination form which can be found on the community board in the foyer of the Highbridge store.
