A CLEVEDON children’s charity has been given a cheque for £3,500 to help fund its work with youngsters with additional needs.

Springboard Opportunity Group received the donation from First Great Western which raised the money by running two Santa 
Special train journeys over the 
Severn Beach before Christmas.

The events were organised by the train operator’s staff at Bristol Temple Meads and St Phillips Marsh.

Over the past 15 months, staff at St Phillips Marsh have raised more than £13,000 for the cause which has a base in Princes Road, 
Clevedon, and also one in Weston.
