Weekly bike nights on Burnham seafront raise cash for charity
£400 has been raised for charity during a series of summer
motorbike nights in Burnham-On-Sea - despite bad weather cancelling
two of the weekly events.
bikers gathered in Burnham's Morrisons car park on Tuesday (June
4th) for the latest in the series of weekly bike runs, which are
being held to raise money for local good causes.
Phil Hayward told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We're really pleased
to have raised around £400 so far for good causes from donations
and entry fees from the bike riders."
weather was superb this week, but two of the previous five events
had to be cancelled due to heavy rain so we have not had the best
look forward to seeing more bikers over the coming weeks and local
people to see the bikes on showl. We really hope that this gathers
bikers arrive from 6pm each Tuesday and each biker makes a donation
of £1, with the proceeds going to local charities plus the
memorial fund set up in memory of Dylan Cecil, the four year-old
boy who died after falling from the town's jetty last year.
bike nights are being supported by Burnham Town Team and are held
each Tuesday until September 1st. Members of the public are encouraged
