The money was raised through a number of activities including the Christmas float collection and Christmas hamper and Easter egg raffles.

Some of the charities which have benefited include the Bristol Children’s Hospital, North Somerset Mencap, St Peter’s Hospice, the Curzon Community Centre for the Arts, 1st Backwell Scouts, Holy Trinity Christmas lunch and Springboard Opportunity Group.

The group carried out its regular daffodil planting programme to brighten up the town in spring and members transported partially-sighted people to a club in Clevedon.

The Lions also sponsor one of the plant troughs which brighten the High Street in the summer.
