ALMOST £10,000 has been raised by the Rotary Club of Clevedon Yeo for two worthwhile causes.

The club held a day at Chepstow races in aid of Meningitis UK, with about 100 members and guests treated to fine dining and an afternoon of excitement, which included an auction and a bucket collection.

This resulted in more than £5,000 being raised.

That success was followed by a Help for Heroes concert at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Marine Hill.

Club president Chris Morris said: “It was again obvious from the support we received, not only from traders in the town but from the Clevedon public, that our lads and lasses on the front-line are very much in their thoughts.

“From both our recent events, the total raised will be approaching £10,000.”
