Burnham Carnival - Presentation Night
On Friday 13th December the Burnham Carnival Committee held a cheque presentation ceremony to distribute the profits from this year's Carnival.
Chairman Robin Harrington gave a short speech where he told the packed audience at the Burnham Village Hall (formerly Carnival Hall) that despite the huge cost of putting on the Carnival and the difficult economic climate the Carnival Committee has been able to distribute a stunning total of £4500 to local charities and good causes and that local businesses, particularly the pubs and restaurants had again enjoyed a good day.
The organisations which received donations were:
The Old People's fund
The Burnham Air Cadets
Burnham Ramblers Junior Football Team
The Welcome Club at Burnham Baptist Church
Santa's Sweet Fund
Action for Family Carers Young Carers team
Burnham History Society
Dengie Hopes and Dreams
Each recipient gave a short speech as to what the funding will be spent on.
Action for Family Carers is arranging a trip for up to 30 young carers to the Rio Cinema in Burnham. This will give these children a break from caring for sick family members so that they have a chance to be carefree for an evening. The Air Cadets are funding new computers. Warwick Court is brightening up their foyer to lift the mood of their residents. The Ramblers Junior Football team will have new kit. The Welcome Club supports people with learning disabilities. The History Society will improve the Museum at Burnham. Dengie Hopes and Dreams have been given funding towards their theatrical production for local children during the summer holidays.
The Carnival takes place every year on the last Saturday in September. The Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 4th February 2014 at 8.00 pm at the Council Offices in Chapel Road, Burnham. We welcome new members who can bring their ideas on how to make thisyear's Carnival more successful than ever.
One of the most popular parts of Carnival is the Grand Draw with tickets being sold in the weeks running up to Carnival and on the day itself.
There were many fabulous prizes and one of them was a photo shoot and a canvas frame from Keith Williams Photography.
The Haddrell family from Southminster were the lucky winners and are featured below.
