The Gordano Breakfast Rotary Club has raised more than £2,000 during its first open air music festival.

The group collected a total of £2,204 for the open air pool through the Lido Music Fest which was held on June 8.

The money will go towards improving the pool’s disabled facilities, as well as other charities which are supported by the club.

A spokesman said: “We were immensely proud that the Rock Choir, which is the pioneering contemporary choir in the UK and remains unique with more than 27,000 members, sent its Portishead section and gave a stunning performance.”

As well as the choir, a number of other talented musical groups performed.

The Highly Strung community Band, Clevedon UkeBox and The Mallards all put on superb shows for the packed audience.
