Dozens of villagers shared a delicious breakfast of bacon butties and sausage sandwiches at the weekend to raise valuable cash for charity.

Congresbury’s annual Big Breakfast for Weston Hospicecare was held at the war memorial hall on Saturday.

The fundraising feast raised more than £1,000 for the charity as hungry visitors descended on the hall.

A dedicated team of volunteers pitched in and cooked up a selection of delicious treats to delight the diners.

The fundraising event has been running for more than a decade, collecting thousands of pounds for the hospice, which has cared for several villagers with life-limiting illnesses over the years.

Organiser Julie Gosling said: “The big breakfast went extremely well at the new venue and we made more than £1,000 profit for the hospice.

“I would like to thank all our suppliers and the team of volunteers who helped on the day.”
