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.
