Volunteers who support Weston Hospicecare are looking for more people to join their ranks.

Friends of Weston Hospicecare comprises groups of supporters who meet regularly and hold a range of fundraising events throughout the year to provide money for the charity.

The Burnham Friends group is currently looking for more members.

The group puts on a wide variety of events including a regular coffee morning on the third Saturday of every month at Burnham Methodist Church.

Members are keen to hear from anyone who could bake a cake, sell raffle tickets or help with refreshments at the events.

Weston Hospicecare, which is based in Uphill, provides care and support to people affected by life-limiting illness.

It also provides vital support to their families.

To find out more about joining the group, contact Sue Thorne on 07776 306125.
