Feasting for funds

A FEAST and an auction in Clevedon raised more than £1,700 for charity.

The event was held at Clevedon Baptist Church by the Changing Lives charity shop in Clevedon and Crisis Ministries and FareShare in Bristol.

Guests enjoyed a banquet courtesy of Fareshare, which uses surplus foods from the food and drink industry to feed disadvantaged people.

They then listened to a short presentation from each charity before bidding on some of the top gifts on offer in the auction.

The event was such a success the charities are hoping to repeat the fund-raiser at other churches in the area.
