A group of fundraising motoring enthusiasts has presented over £1,000 to a Burnham-On-Sea charity.

Members of the Blue Ridge Runners have visited BARB Search & Rescue on Burnham seafront, which runs the town’s rescue hovercrafts, to present a bumper cheque for £1,073.23.

The money was raised when 80 classic American hot rods, trucks, bikes and classic vehicles roared through Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge in September in a mass convoy for charity during the annual Classic, Custom and American Auto Club Show held in West Huntspill.

The group’s Keith Biddicombe explained: “We made BARB our charity of the year and are really pleased to have raised such a great amount. They’re a fantastic local charity with a superb team of volunteers who do amazing work all year-round in the Burnham area.”

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.

The 2019 Classic, Custom and American Auto Club Show returns to West Huntspill on September 7th and 8th.
