Hotels for ex-armed forces members have received donations from supporters.

Yatton's Royal British Legion travelled to Weston to tour Somerset Legion House.

The centre, just off the seafront, offers respite breaks for forces personnel and their families.

Branch members were impressed with what they saw.

A spokesman said: "It is an excellent place where ex-service personnel and their relatives can spend time to rest, relax and get back to normal life.

"Simon and Sarah Reakes plus Chris Holloway were most impressed and were very happy to present Somerset Legion House with a cheque for £250, along with another cheque for £250 to Dunkirk Memorial House in Taunton."

Philip Stone, duty manager of the Weston site, will talk to the branch on Monday at Yatton Rugby Club at 7.30pm.
