A local cleaning products supplier has given a boost to Burnham-On-Sea’s rescue hovercraft charity BARB.

AutoSmart has donated £200 of cleaning and maintenance products to the seafront-based charity and will be supporting the organisation in the year ahead.

The firm’s Rob Whitby said: “I am very happy to support this local charity as best I can. Our products will help BARB deal with the muddy, salty conditions that its crafts and vehicles operate in.”

Operations Manager Mike Lowe added: “We are very grateful for this kind donation and the support of AutoSmart. As a small independent charity, we rely on the generosity of donors like this.”
