Burnham-On-Sea's Christmas tree to be decorated with memories

A Burnham-On-Sea hotel is encouraging visitors to attach colourful baubles and ribbons to a Christmas tree as touching tributes to loved ones while raising funds for a local charity.

The Victoria Hotel in Burnham’s Victoria Street is selling festive baubles and ribbons – with space on each to write brief messages remembering people who have passed away – with donations going to charity Somerset Time For Youth.

Victoria publicans Shaun and Carla McCann say there has already been lots of interest in the scheme for the town’s Christmas tree outside the hotel.

Carla, pictured, told "We wanted to let our customers decorate the tree while raising money for a good cause."

"By doing this, we can help local people remember loved ones at Christmas and also help a great local charity."

"We have already had a lot of interest – the baubles are selling for a donation of £3, wooden hearts are £2.50, and ribbons are £2."

Somerset Time For Youth offers social and leisure activities for local special needs young people from across the Burnham-On-Sea area aged 0-18yrs.
