Bazaar raises Christmas lights cash

MORE than �1,200 was raised for Clevedon’s Christmas lights during a grand home and garden bazaar.

Organised by Clevedon Pride to help fund the festive lights in Queens Square, the event in the town centre saw hundreds of bargain-hunters turn out to view the items donated by residents and traders.

A number of collectable items were also valued by staff from Clevedon Salerooms and will go into the next specialist sale to be put on at the Kenn Road saleroom on April 12. The auction house has waived its usual commission fee to support the cause.

Clevedon Pride chairman Jo Lea-Jones said: “This was a fantastic effort on the part of Clevedon Pride and the Clevedon community.

“The money raised will be put toward the Christmas lights appeal of �10,000.”
