Portishead Rotary Club has raised hundreds of pounds for an African region.
The group has given £500 to the Kanamai Development Trust, a charity formed in Portishead to support the southern Kenyan coastal district.
The area is regularly hit by extreme storms and winds, and is desperately in need of clean drinking water, sanitation and healthcare.
Rotary club president John Sleight said: “The children are deprived of these basic needs and also need education and hope for employment.
“We at Portishead Rotary are only too please to play a part in its development.”
The Kanamai Development Trust was founded in 2010 by Portishead residents Pearl and Dr Paul Walker.
The charity is aiming to build a school, clinic and farm to help the local community.
