MORE than £12,000 was raised in 12 months by the charitable members of Burnham’s Moose organisation.

At the April lodge meeting, when the group performs its yearly change-over of officers, Burnham’s Moose handed out donations to local charities.

The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance was the biggest benefactor, receiving a cheque for £6,815.32.

Children’s Hospice South-West received £2,514.98, FLAG Flood relief got £1,523 and Children in Need received £1,429.44.
