A Portishead nursery has held a summer fair to raise hundreds of pounds for charity.

Honeytree Day Nursery in Stoke Road raised more than £376 for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Honeytree Fest hosted lots of games and activities for visitors of all ages, including tombola, 
face-painting and also nail art.

Live music was performed while stalls were also set up with delicious cakes made by staff and parents proving particularly popular.

A spokesman for the nursery said: “We also had a live local singer, Billy Driscoll, who sang some amazing acoustic versions of popular songs.

“We had a big raffle with lots of local attractions donating tickets.”

A representative from CHSW has since visited the nursery to allow children and staff to hand over the cheque.
