Vehicles show in West Huntspill raises funds for Burnham charity

Over 140 vehicles - from American hot rods to trucks and classic vehicles - went on show in West Huntspill at the weekend during a fundraising show for a Burnham-On-Sea charity.

The Blue Ridge Runners held a convoy of vehicles through Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday, which was followed on Sunday by their popular Classic, Custom and American Auto Club Motor Show.

Cor-organiser Jennifer Stamps told "It was a great weekend despite the poor weather on Saturday. We had a good turnout of spectators and hope to have raised a good sum for our charity, BARB Search & Rescue, which runs Burnham's rescue hovercrafts.

The Blue Ridge Runners were formed in 1989 to link up motoring enthusiasts from across the South West who own hot rods, trucks and other unusual vehicles. Thousands of pounds are raised for local charities from the group's events.

During Sunday's show, members of the Burnham Bike Knights also arrived at the showground at the end of a successful fundraising bike run for BARB.
