Youngsters have donated food to feed people in need over the winter months.

Wraxall Primary School pupils collected a mammoth harvest fundraising total this term through their school community's generous efforts, collecting the equivalent weight of a baby elephant.

More than 100kg of food will be donated to the Clevedon & District Foodbank.

Headteacher Amy Townsend said: "I am so proud of the children, we are a small school with fewer than 100 pupils and to have been able to have collected this much food just reflects the kindness and generosity of our families."

Clevedon & District Foodank has provided food parcels to people in crisis across North Somerset since 2012 and has served 1,604 three-day emergency food supplies.

The Foodbank is short of tinned ham, tinned salmon, and savoury biscuits and donations can be made on Mondays and Fridays at the warehouse in Knowles Road.
