A Clevedon club has raised money for the Foodbank.
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.
Club president Tony Carrington said: "It's been a frenetic few weeks but the has club pulled together to raise money for the Foodbank, as well as providing practical help and raise a good four figure sum which we will look to allocate to local good causes and projects in the new year."
