Staff and students from St Francis Primary School in Nailsea were invited to wear dressing gowns and pyjamas and take cuddly toys to school to take part in a sponsored bed push.

The children enjoyed giving their toys a ride on the equipment. The money raised will be put towards a surgical robot for a cancer unit at Southmead Hospital and a Motivation wheelchair for a child in a developing country.
