A night of music and joy in Portishead raised thousands of pounds for underprivileged African children.
Children from the Jolaurabi School, based near Mombasa in Kenya, visited Portishead to perform a concert.
The 30 pupils visited Portishead Primary School and Gordano School in the morning before performing a concert in the evening.
The show, which also featured Portishead-based children's choir Generation Vibe, raised £2,500 for the schools.
The event was organised by Tanya Marriott, owner of SoleLution in High Street, who frequently visits Kenya to make donations to the school.
She said: "The evening concert was amazing. My 12-year-old son George introduced the Kenyan choir after telling the audience, in his own words, what his work for the charity means to him.
"The evening ended with a standing ovation and the energy in the hall was just amazing."
