UNWANTED treasures went under the hammer at a charity auction in Burnham.

The 1st Burnham Scout Group held the event at their headquarters in Stoddens Road on Saturday.

Group scout leader Dave Burland said: "It was a bit slow due to the weather but some items had quite a few bids on them.

"The thing most people were interested in was a telescope, which eventually sold for the bargain price of about £17."

The final total raised during the event is still being added up.

Dave is hoping to set up a second beaver unit for the town and is looking for volunteers to help run sessions.

Anyone interested in becoming a leader or committee member is urged to call 01278 786960.
