A parent teacher association (PTA) raised almost £2,000 at its winter supper fundraiser.

Wedmore First School Academy PTA held an evening of good food and music to raise money for its pupils.

Members of the PTA served up locally-sourced food and auctioned off donations from businesses in Wedmore, which raised £600.

Secretary America Hendry, who spent the evening working hard in the kitchen, said: “The feedback we received was that it was really good fun and there was a lot of dancing.

“It was a really good night and from a fundraising aspect it was a huge success.”

The money raised will go back into the school in order to provide the best education possible for its pupils.
