PUBLISHED: 18:00 12 September 2013
MORE than 200 Subarus parked on Weston's beach to raise £1,300 for the town's lifesaving charity.
Members of the West Mids Imprezas club met to show off their cars and support Weston RNLI’s £300,000 appeal to build a new lifeboat station.
Subaru owners donated £5 to the charity to park on the beach and, in all, £1,302.88 was raised for the campaign.
Weston RNLI spokesman Glyn Hayes said: “This is a magnificent sum to help us in our aim of providing new facilities for the RNLI in Weston.
“We will keep on providing life saving in Weston Bay and hope that organisations such as this continue to help us to do so.”
The Mercury is supporting Weston RNLI’s appeal and donations can be sent care of the Mercury to 32 Waterloo Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1LW.
