Hundreds of pounds have been raised to help Burnham-On-Sea Carnival return again next year following a low collection at Monday’s parade.
The organisers has an online crowdfunding page here and is appealing for donations towards the ever-increasing costs of running the event.
It comes after the Burnham-On-Sea carnival night collection raised £8,652, split between local charities and the event itself, which was down on previous years.
Chair Annalee New told Burnham-On-Sea.com that the donations have been coming in fast after the launch of the crowdfunding page.
“We are overwhelmed by the support we have received, smashing our original £500 target and we can’t thank you enough!”
She adds: “We aren’t far off doubling our original target, this is certainly going to help toward the running costs and future of Highbridge & Burnham On Sea Carnival.”
Over £700 had been raised by last night.
