THE work of the rescue hovercraft can often appear to be as dramatic as a Hollywood movie script and now Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have, indirectly, done their bit to help save lives in Somerset.

Burnham’s Ritz Cinema, in Victoria Street, has collected £114 for the town’s rescue boat at a number of charity screenings recently.

Pat Scott, from the cinema, said: “The money was collected during our screenings of the re-release of the blockbuster Titanic.

“We wanted to help a local sea rescue charity and were delighted to collect for Burnham Area Rescue Boat (BARB), which does such an essential job in the Burnham area.”

BARB is run entirely by volunteer and has rescued more than 200 people over the past two decades.
