Burnham pub manager completes Weston Beach race for charity

The manager of a Burnham-On-Sea pub raised hundreds of pounds for charity by completing the Weston Beach Race at the weekend.

Mark Robson, the manager of The Rosewood in Love Lane, raised £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part part in the RHL Weston Beach Race on Sunday.

Mark, who has worked in the Hungry Horse pub for two years, has been riding motorbikes since he was a boy, but took on the famous sandy track for the first time.

He finished in 212th place out of around 400 competitors after completing 13 laps during the three hour event.

In addition to his riding challenge, Mark dressed in Macmillan-themed green clothing, including a bright wig on top of his helmet!

Mark told "I am really happy to have finished the race. It was a really enjoyable experience, the atmosphere was absolutely banging. I’d like to thank everyone who came to support me and everyone who donated."

Mark’s friends, members of the team from the Rosewood and the Hungry Horse mascot Super Horse were there to cheer him on and collect donations.
