helped raise more than £2,000 for local charities.
people took part in the first Rescue Rainbow Run during Sunday's
rescue services day, getting showered with coloured paint as they
made their way along the beach.
RNLI and BARB Search & Rescue jointly organised the successful
participants walked, jogged or skipped the 3.5km route from Burnham's
jetty to the town's iconic lighthouse and back whilst experiencing
several explosions of rainbow coloured powder paint along the way.
proceeds from entry fees were split between the RNLI and BARB to
fund the work of the two charities.
Lesley-Ruth Hart said: "It's been a great success and we are
all delighted with the level of interest in this first run. There
was a great atmosphere and we're happy that a good amount has been
raised for the two charities."
event organisers were Lesley-Ruth Hart and Dan Fear at the RNLI,
and Mike Lowe at BARB.
