Nailsea Charity Walks, which is organised by the Rotary Club of Nailsea and Backwell, saw hundreds of walkers take part in one of three routes around the town in aid of charities, clubs and organisations.

Organisers have donated £1,195 to Alchemy Trampoline and DMC Club and £621 to Nailsea Air Cadets from the event.

The next event will be held on June 10 with 5km, 10km and 20km routes for walkers and runners.

Alchemy’s Jon Webb said: “Nailsea Charity Walks is a great way for our members and supporters of all ages to get together, have fun and raise funds for us.

“This year we will use the funds towards a new Olympic standard trampoline so all our teams can benefit from the higher standard equipment.”

The Rotary club would like to thank everyone who supported the event.
