Hundreds of pounds has been raised for a children’s charity.

More than 30 students from The Rock Project North Somerset - who hail from Nailsea, Clevedon, Portishead and Long Ashton - played a charity for Springboard Opportunity Group which supports children aged zero to five with learning difficulties.

The students, aged 12-18, played 20 songs over two hours at the Hen & Chicken, in Bristol, and were able to raise £300.54.

Andy Collins, who runs the project, said: "This was another fantastic charity gig which raised a great amount of money for a very worthy local cause.

"All our students sounded amazing and should be very proud of what they have achieved."

Students will next perform at the Portishead Open Air Pool on June 21 from 4-8.30pm at The Longest Swim in aid of the Raj K Soni Foundation.
