Over £2,600 has been raised for community group BIARS, which runs Burnham-On-Sea’s tourist information centre, and the town’s Rotary Club during a special fundraising evening.
Saturday’s event at The Oaktree was jointly organised with Burnham-On-Sea’s Rotary Club and was well attended by scores of supporters, as pictured here.
The event featured musical entertainment from the 1960s-style pop group Monopole as well as a raffle and auction plus two fun race horse events.
“It’s an amazing result, well above expectations and it is very important to BIARS which has been run as a community volunteer group for nearly eight years. We mostly depend on advertisements from attractions and accommodation providers, plus fundraising to allow us to keep providing the vital information we give. Over 60% of people visiting our tourism centre are local residents.”
