Burnham RNLI benefited from the Methodist Church fair


LIFE-SAVERS from the RNLI have been given a cash boost by a bunch of festive fund-raisers.

Burnham’s branch of the sea rescue charity received ‘several hundred pounds’ from supporters at Burnham Methodist Church.

The cash was raised at a Christmas fair run alongside the church’s coffee morning, which featured games, a raffle, a white elephant stall and the chance to buy plants and decorations.

Burnham RNLI treasurer Jan Pearce said: “We are grateful for the support from Burnham Methodist Church.

“Nothing was too much trouble, and they also donated profit from the coffee morning to our fund-raising event.”
