Burnham-on-Sea’s Moose International Lodge 123 held its governor’s party in aid of governor Jim Dolan’s chosen charity Cots For Tots and lady president Pat Burge’s nominated cause, Weston Hospital Scanner Appeal.

The theme for this year’s fundraiser was childrens’ stories and many of the members attended in fancy dress.

The ladies catering team served up bangers and beans plus other favourite kids’ food.

Jim Dolan said: “We had a brilliant nights entertainment from moose member and tellytubby Nick, who supplied the disco, with the ladies working hard in the kitchen to produce the buffet supper.”
