The Jack Hazeldine Foundation (JHF) received a donation of £828.54 from a Christmas Raffle Charity of Choice.

Lloyds employees Lisa Marshall, Helen Denman and Jakki Carpenter raised £414.27, which was matched by Lloyds for the total sum.

The funds will be used to provide 'much-needed' resources for placements in Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead and Weston.

The JHF's managing director, Pearl Cross, said: "This fundraiser has not only raised valuable funds but it has facilitated meaningful conversations about our local children and young people.

"Members of the community have stepped forward to tell us they know of many students who encounter personal obstacles within mainstream education, and some who have demonstrated transformative change through mentoring."
