A Burnham-On-Sea fundraiser who organsied a 'Miss England' charity ball this month has raised thousands of pounds for two good causes.

Emily Sanders, 22, a trainee teacher from Burnham, hosted the ball earlier this month at Rookery Manor to raise funds for Beauty with a Purpose and Variety, the Children’s Charity. The ball has raised a whopping £4,000.

There was a special appearance at the event from Bristol and North Somerset Mascots.

Emily said: "I have been overwhelmed with the generous local support from those who attended the event and local businesses. It really does show the charitable, community spirit of our local area. I would like to thank everyone who has been involved and helped me along the way."

She thanked the many local firms who supported the event, including Burnham's Nick Tolley gave his time to photograph the event and donated a percentage of profits to Variety, the Children’s Charity.

Other local businesses supporting the causes by donating raffle and auction prizes included ‘Rob the Boilerman,’ PTS solutions, Batch Country House Farm and Wall Eden Farm as the main sponsors of the event. FresHair, N-Hance, Haircraft, Peter Jones, Unique beauty also donated vouchers and gifts to the event.

The Ritz Cinema, Chandni, La Vela, Animal Farm, Exeter Chiefs Rugby, Somerset County Cricket Club, West Croft Farm and Brean Leisure Park donated to the main auction, raising over £1,500.
