VOLUNTEERS from a Burnham-on-Sea based rescue charity have thanked a team of fundraisers after receiving a hefty donation.

The Blue Ridge Runners raised £1,875 for BARB Search and Rescue by driving dozens of classic vehicles through Burnham-on-Sea’s High Street at the annual Classic, Custom and American Auto Club Show in September.

A spokesperson for BARB, said: “The Blue Ridge Runners team have been strong supporters of BARB for several years, raising funds for us from their regular vehicle shows.

“This year, they really have done an amazing job in raising such a fantastic sum towards the costs of running our life-saving rescue service and we are hugely grateful.

“BARB is a independent charity that relies fully on local donations to keep running, so amounts like this genuinely do make a real difference. Thank you.”
