fireworks fundraisers appeal for more support
than £200 was raised at a quiz night towards the cost of
holding next year's Burnham-On-Sea fireworks display - and organisers
are appealing for more support of future fundraising events.
quiz night at the Oaktree last Friday raised a total of £207
and while organiser Jordan Jones said the evening was enjoyed,
he believes the amount was "slightly disappointing."
the amount of people that supported the event I think this is
a good figure, however I feel the support the event received was
very disappointing," he told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
whole idea of the 'Burnham & Highbridge Firework Fund 2014'
is to safeguard the fireworks for next year. We are currently
living in a world of council cuts and we at The Oaktree feel it
would be a huge loss to the area if there was to be no fireworks
in 2014 because of funding issues."
added: "We are willing to organise and run various events
over the course of the year to try and raise enough money secure
the fireworks but without the support of the people who enjoy
watching the fireworks every year we face an impossible task."
are planning an event in December and really need the support
from local people to make it a success and help guarantee our
annual firework display happens in 2014."
of December's event will be announced here on Burnham-On-Sea.com.
