mornings raise £1,500 for Burnham tourist information centre
community group that runs Burnham-On-Sea's tourist information
centre has raised over £1,500 towards its work by holding
a series of coffee mornings.
(Burnham Information and Recue Support) held regular coffee mornings
at Burnham's Methodist Church during 2015 to raise £1,548
towards the running costs of the seafront centre.
Chairman Tom Ashton thanked the church for accommodating BiARS
with their coffee mornings and presented a member of the church
with flowers to decorate the church during the festive period.
Business and Tourism Manager Ian Jefferies said: "The Methodist
Church have been wonderful with their hospitality during 2015
and we thank them very much for use of the venue. I understand
the Friends of Burnham Hospital have the slot for 2016 and I hope
all that were fantastic in their support for us show the same
support to the Friends."
BiARS we have a tremendous group of volunteers who cannot be thanked
enough for once again showing their support in organising these
volunteers deal with questions from over 80,000 visitors and locals
each year plus the many enquiries by phone and email at the Information
Centre on the seafront and this money will go to ensuring we can
continue this valuable service."
Methodist Church's Dorothy May said that that the third Saturday
of each month is set aside for a chosen charity to use the premises
to raise funds for their work.
