The Jack Hazeldine Foundation, a youth support charity based in Clevedon, teamed up with the town's cricket club to host its first sporting event.

Children aged two to 11 took part in coaching sessions based around football, netball, tennis, cricket and rugby, while the adults rolled back the years in a relay race with the youngsters at the end of the day.

People could enjoy face-painting, a bouncy castle, a barbecue, bar and music from The Mallards, Will Stubbs, Keith Austin and other acts as well.

The charity's managing director, Pearl Cross, said: "It was brilliant to see so many people come out to support the foundation at our sports day.

"It didn't only help raise awareness and valuable funds for the charity, but brought the community together."
