A family has raised hundreds of pounds for Portishead Youth Centre.

They sold photographs of Portishead Quays Marina to support the centre, in Harbour Road.

Lucy Norris, aged 12, presented a cheque for £100, taking the family’s fundraising total to £400.

The pictures were taken by Liz McGowan, Lucy’s auntie, with two of the canvasses available to buy with proceeds going to the youth centre.

Assistant manager, Kim Jones, said: “The generosity shown by Lucy’s family has been extraordinary and we are very pleased to have been donated such a great original canvas in the youth centre, and we hope the other two canvasses go to good homes that will enjoy them.”

Anyone interested in buying one of the remaining canvasses can view them at the youth centre.
