Clevedon Lions Club has raised almost £6,000 through its Santa float and Christmas collections.

The club’s float ran throughout December and the £5,950 raised will go to this year’s Dream Scheme.

The initiative started two years ago and has since gone on to provide around £10,000 to 20 community groups.

A Lions spokesman said: “For the Lions club, it is important the public see the benefit their Christmas donations bring – supporting young and old as well as encouraging more voluntary participation.

“The successful organisations help hundreds of Clevedon people.

“This scheme has been a great success.”

Applications will be judged by Lions members and winners will be announced in February.

The deadline for applications is January 31.

Application forms are available from clevedonlions@gmail.com
