Pupils from a Backwell school have supported the nearby children’s hospice by donating food and playing a Christmas concert.
Students from Fairfield School donated food collected at their harvest festival to Charlton Farm, which cares for children with life-limiting conditions who are not expected to reach adulthood.
Emma Parker, community fundraiser for the charity said: "We would like to thank Fairfield's children, staff and parents for their kind donations.
"Families often tell us they cherish the chance to sit down and enjoy a freshly cooked meal together. Our services are free to families so we're very grateful for the school's wonderful donation."
Earlier this month, pupils from the school visited the hospice to sing carols and perform with handbells.
