Burnham-on-Sea Estate Agent Sponsors local RNLI Volunteers
This Saturday, 19 October, Burnham-on-Sea RNLI volunteers have organised a grand ball, at the Batch Country Hotel in Lympsham.
Jeremy Bell, a partner of Burnham based estate agents Greenslade Taylor Hunt, visited Burnham lifeboat station on Wednesday evening, 16 October, to present a cheque for eight hundred pounds towards the lifeboat ball sponsorship.
The main benefits of the ball are perceived to be fundraising and awareness of RNLI key campaigns, plus the added effect of local team building. Catering by the Batch has an excellent reputation, plus the entertainment from local function band ‘Six Machine’ both combine to elevate the prestigious profile of this well attended event.
At an opportune moment during the evening’s festivities there will also be a short video presentation highlighting the work of the RNLI.
Sponsor Jeremy Bell, from Greenslade Taylor Hunt says; ‘We have had an Estate Agent’s office based in Burnham-on-Sea since 1831, and we thought that it would be only right to sponsor our local RNLI lifeboat station.’
Launch Authority Phil Counsell adds; ’We thank Jeremy Bell for this sponsorship which demonstrates recognition of our position within the community. The ball is a very important event for our station.’
