Reeds Rains in Clevedon is hoping everyone can enjoy a chocolate treat this Christmas.

The estate agent in Clevedon's Triangle has donated a collection of selection boxes to the Foodbank and hopes its actions might encourage other businesses to do the same.

Charlotte Emsley, director of Reeds Rains Clevedon, said: "Christmas can be a financially difficult time for a lot of people, especially those who are dependent on the foodbank.

"While we understand essentials are what is most needed, we thought some festive treats will put a smile on a number of children's faces this Christmas.

"We hope our small gesture will also show them that people care."

The Clevedon and Portishead branches of Reeds Rains are willing to accept donations of selection boxes from other businesses or individuals.

The collection will continue until Sunday when they will deliver them to the Foodbank.
