Colourful costumes and strong walking shoes were the order of the day when over 30 Burnham and Highbridge residents took part in a fancy dress sponsored beach walk on Sunday afternoon (June 25th).
Participants in the 6km ‘Smile Walk’ started at Burnham Jetty, then hiked along the beach to Berrow Golf Course and back.
A spring was put in their stride by the the King Alfred Band, who performed a number of stirring tunes at the start of the event.
Organiser Becky Saunders told Burnham-On-Sea.com she had been “delighted” with the turnout and thanked all those who has supported the event, which is expected to have raised several hundreds of pounds for the Peter Gilliard Memorial School in India.
“The inspiration for the name of the event – the Smile Walk – was a wonderful photo of a smiling Indian schoolgirl which really struck a chord with us.”
