Mayor and Mayoress hand over cheque following charity concert success

The rescue crews gathered on Burnham beach as the two cheques were handed over to the RNLI's Tony Winterburn and Nick Redding, and BARB's Peter Charles and Simon Triggol

Burnham-On-Sea's Mayor and Mayoress handed over cheques to the town's lifeboat and hovercraft crews this week following a successful fundraising concert held earlier in the year.

Mayoress Gilli Kenyon-Gill, who organised the event with her husband Eric, raised an impressive £320 at the well-supported event in Highbridge Community Centre during April.

Gilli prepares for her flight on Burnham's hovercraftThis week, the rescue crews gathered on Burnham beach as the two cheques were handed over to the RNLI's Tony Winterburn and Nick Redding, and BARB's Peter Emery and Simon Triggol.

Gilli was then taken on a flight in the hovercraft along the beach to the town's lighthouse, which she described as "simply marvellous."
