Bikers hold fun day in aid of rescue services who helped in Dylan Cecil search
BIKERS from across Sedgemoor geared up to hold a fun day in aid of the rescue services who helped search for four-year-old Dylan Cecil.
Little Dylan drowned after falling from Burnham jetty last year, but the dramatic rescue efforts of charities such as BARB, the RNLI and Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance have inspired people to help raise cash for the causes.
A fundraising bike run was held on Sunday (September 1), along with the fun day and saw 100 bikers travel from the town’s seafront to Chew Valley Lake and back.
Entertainment for the fun day came in the form of a bouncy castle, tombola, raffle and auction.
Burnham Lions Club were also at the event, working hard to fundraise for the charities with a raffle to win a cuddly lion toy and helping to serve refreshments.
The total was still being counted as the Weekly News went to press, but it is estimated hundreds of pounds was raised.
Organisers thanked people for their support of the fun day and of the Burnham Bike Nights, which take place every Tuesday until September 24 from Morrisons car park at 6pm.
