Students from primary schools in Backwell banded together to help raise cash for vital classroom equipment, with a little help from Nailsea Lions.
Pupils from West Leigh Infants, and Backwell Junior School helped members of the Nailsea Lions raise cash for their parent-teacher associations (PTA) by helping Father Christmas collect donations when the Nailsea Lions Christmas float toured Backwell in December.
A cheque for £290, to be divided between the two schools, from Nailsea Lions was presented to the PTA on Thursday.
The money will go towards funding new smart whiteboards in classrooms at both schools.
A Backwell PTA man said: “This was a fantastic festive opportunity which we were very grateful to be involved in.
