BARB bowled over by donation from town group
BARB Search & Rescue has been bowled over by a donation from
a club in the town.
Bowling Club has donated £400 to the seafront charity to
help fund its life-saving work across Somerset.
Bridges, from Burnham Bowling Club, said: "We wanted the
money to a good local cause and picked BARB because of its wonderful
work along the coastline and in the recent floods. The money came
from us winning the Weston Over 60s League."
BARB spokesman said: "We are very grateful for the club's
support. BARB relies on the generosity of local people to keep
running, so every penny is very much appreciated."
Search & Rescue is a registered charity that operates two
life-saving hovercrafts and an inshore rescue boat. It is run
entirely by volunteers and has helped and rescued hundreds of
people since it was formed over 20 years ago.
