PUBLISHED: 12:00 03 January 2018
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.
