The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation hosted its second family event at Portishead Football Club.

The event raised £8,032.30 for the foundation set up in the name of eight-year-old Ben who died after a battle with a diffuse intrinsic pontine flioma (DIPG) brain tumour.

He died six months after his diagnosis in November 2017.

The family set up the foundation to enhance bereavement support and services.

The day saw various fairground games set up and children's favourite comic book characters including storm troopers posing for pictures.

Guests could also enjoy barbecue food and a cheeky tipple while listening to live music at the football club.
