Mayor of Burnham and Highbridge Bill Hancock has announced his charities of the year for 2018-19.
He has chosen to support both Burnham’s RNLI and BARB Search and Rescue.
Mayor Hancock said: “This year we are shining a spotlight on all the work which takes place to keep our beautiful beaches clean and safe.
“It is really important to make sure these dedicated teams have the equipment they need to keep our residents and visitors safe, so I will be actively supporting these groups during the year.”
RNLI and BARB are both life-saving charities whose volunteers carry out rescue missions at sea throughout the year.
The mayor will also be supporting Burnham’s beach cleaning groups and Litter Free Coast and Sea Somerset.
The litter-free group is working with Burnham and Highbridge Town Council in a bid to gain a plastic-free status for these areas.
