The Yeo Rotary Club raised £650 for the charity at a successful quiz night last month.

It also assisted the Foodbank personnel over several days, collecting donations at Tesco for its Christmas hamper fundraiser, which provides a boost to people struggling during the festive period.

The club also held a Christmas hamper raffle, manning a stall at the Christmas lights switch-on event, St Nicholas Fair and two days at Tesco.

After costs, the club will have raised roughly £1,200 for its charitable work.
