Railway Heritage Group boosted by fundraising walk
Railway Heritage Group was given a funding boost by a group of sponsored
walkers on Saturday (August 6th).
Little Helpers, a local community group, held a successful walk
from Highbridge Railway Station to the rail buffers in Burnham's
it was our first event, it was a huge success and we managed to
raise an impressive £193.21 for the Burnham-On-Sea Railway
Heritage Group," said the group's Kayleigh Marie.
walk started at around 11.30am from the train station and we made
our way through the Apex, down Marine Drive and Old Station Approach
to the seafront where we were met by Ann Popham from the Heritage
then had a lovely picnic on the pier. The kids were wonderfully
behaved and altogether walked around about two miles in their Little
Helpers hats and T-shirts."
Popham thanked the walkers at the end of the event, handing them
postcards of the railway buffers, and said: "We are all excited
about this - they did a very good job and we thank each of them."
Little Helpers are now looking forward to their next event, The
Big Family Picnic, to be held in Apex Park on August 24th from 11am-4pm.
