BRIDGWATER Guy Fawkes Carnival Committee has presented a cheque for £600 to The Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital.

The money was raised by the club after it made a donation to the cause for each of the Bridgwater Carnival souvenir statues it sold.

The money was raised following the commissioning and launch of a carnival statuette in October 2012 by the carnival committee.

For every statue sold the committee donated £20 to The Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital.

Titled Remember Remember the statuette was sculptured locally by carnival supporter, Dave Faulks, and casted in cold cast bronze.

Rita Jones, president of Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival Committee, said: “It was Dave’s idea of making a donation to The Beacon Centre for every statuette sold, in loving memory of his wife Sue who tragically passed away.

“The charity does an enormous amount of work for people in and around the local area, and on behalf of everybody associated with Bridgwater Carnival, it gives me great pleasure in presenting this cheque to such a well deserving charity.”
