holiday park's £4,300 boost for Burnham-On-Sea's BARB
Brean holiday park has this week presented a donation of £4,300
to a Burnham-On-Sea charity following a successful fortnight of
fundraising during the village's recent country western festival.
Search & Rescue received the donation from Northam Farm towards
life-saving equipment and the costs of running its two rescue hovercrafts
and inshore rescue boats.
charity's volunteers spent many hours in Brean during October's
country festival collecting donations from visitors to Northam Farm
Holiday Park and The Seagull pub, while the park also organised
various fundraising activities.
Scott, owner of Northam Farm, said: "We are very pleased to
have raised such a great amount for this super local charity. We
wanted to see the money being put to good use locally and the volunteers
at BARB do such a great job all year-round to keep our coastline
here safe that the charity was a clear choice."
Chairman Mark Newman said: "This is a huge amount for us and
we are very grateful to everyone at Northam Farm and The Seagull,
plus the westerners who dug deep during this year's festival. As
a small local charity, BARB relies on local donations to keep running
- we therefore greatly appreciate support like this."
