A business in Clevedon has raised hundreds of pounds for a charity by selling homemade jams and chutneys.

Ann Royce, who made the products, and Ken Gascoigne set up a stall at Clevedon Market that made £220 for Harvey Hext Trust-A Siblings Wish.

Ken said: "It was nice to raise money for children in need.

"On the day, we helped to raise awareness of the charity."

The Harvey Hext Trust provides children with personalised memory boxes to each bereaved sibling in the family.
