A banquet will be held in Clevedon this week to raise money for two charities.

RE:MISSION owns Andrew House – accommodation for men recovering from substance abuse – and will hold a banquet at Christchurch in Chapel Hill at 6.30pm on Friday to raise money for the service.

The event is being organised alongside Fareshare, a national charity which provides food for the homeless.

A RE:MISSION spokesman said: “The banquet will use food that would have ended up in landfill sites simply because it is surplus to needs. All the food used is perfectly edible and it is through the two charities that it can be put to good use.

“Diners will be serenaded by a local string quartet and there will be an opportunity to purchase useful items as sold in Changing Lives shops and take advantage of interesting auction lots.”

Tickets, priced £20, are available from 07540 497796.
