Burnham's Tesco store raises over £1,000 for BARB Search & Rescue

More than £1,000 has been raised for a Burnham-On-Sea charity by customers at a supermarket in the town.

Over the past week, Tesco in Ben Travers Way has held a raffle in aid of BARB Search & Rescue, which operates Burnham's life-saving rescue hovercrafts and inshore rescue boats.

The store's Mandi Bloska said: "To support our Brand Guarantee awareness week, money has been raised for BARB with a raffle for a super hamper and other prizes. There has been a great deal of support for this wonderful local charity and we thank everyone who has helped us raise a superb total of £1,002.63."

A BARB spokesman said: "We are very grateful to all the customers and staff at Tesco who have supported BARB over the past week - the funds are greatly appreciated. All money raised for BARB is put to use locally, helping us maintain our equipment and train our volunteer crewmembers."
