The Royal Oak, in Copse Road in Clevedon, hosted a family fun day for the national cancer charity.

People were able to enjoy a hot or cold drink, snack on a delicious burger or sausage and sit back and enjoy music. There were also plenty of games and stalls for people to browse.

Pub owners Scott and Amy Higgins said Saturday’s event ‘went well’ despite 
the threat of rain, with about 400 people making their 
way down throughout the day.

Scott added: “We do this event every year and we chose Macmillan as it has significance to Amy.

“There are also a lot of people who come in the pub and know people with cancer so we felt it was a very worthwhile cause.”

The event raised £1,653 in total which will go straight to Macmillan Cancer Support to help fund nurses and support for families and patients.
