A fundraising race night is to be held for Burnham-On-Sea’s rescue hovercraft charity BARB Search & Rescue in November.

The charity is organising the fun adults-only evening at The Avenue Tennis Club in Burnham on Saturday 10th November.

Tickets are priced at £5 and include a ploughman’s supper.

Several horse races will be screened during the evening with the event getting underway at 7.15pm. Contact Nick on 07886 270548 or Andy on 07541 854102 to buy tickets or for more details.

BARB, which has been running for over 25 years, operates two rescue hovercrafts and inshore rescue boats from Burnham – it’s funded entirely by donations.

Therefore, the charity says it greatly welcomes support. It is operated by a dedicated team of volunteers who are on-call 24 hours a day to assist the Coastguard with incidents along Somerset’s coastline.
