PUBLISHED: 16:00 28 November 2017
Foodbank volunteers have collected almost 300kg of items for a Christmas hamper campaign at a Nailsea supermarket.
Clevedon and District Foodbank members spent time at Waitrose in High Street where customers donated 282kg, filling four large trolleys.
The food will be used to create hampers which will be sent to families in need across North Somerset.
A foodbank spokesman said: “This is the fourth year we have offered these hampers to our referral agencies so they can make Christmas a bit brighter for local people across our area who would otherwise find it very hard to celebrate.”

Collection points are also at Tesco in Clevedon and the Co-op in Yatton.
