Burnham hovercraft charity receives boost from garden centre visitors

Hundreds of pounds was donated to Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercraft charity BARB during three days of fundraising over the Easter weekend.

Crewmembers from the Burnham charity were invited by Sanders Garden World to collect outside the store in Brent Knoll.

The charity's Light Of Elizabeth hovercraft went on display and beach safety information was given out to customers.

"We received lots of positive feedback from visitors and we are very grateful to all those who helped us collect £330 for the charity during the weekend," a BARB spokesman told
