A TSB branch has donated hundreds of pounds to a local appeal.

The TSB branch in Cheddar has presented a cheque for £575 to The Strawberry Line Society.

The branch has been supporting the society since September last year and has hosted a number of fundraising events including bake sales, raffles, cycle challenges and a triathalon.

The money raised will help maintain the Axbridge to Cheddar section of the Strawberry Line, a 30-mile traffic-free path spanning from Clevedon to Shepton Mallet.

Bank manager Hayley Whiting said: “Our partnership programme is all about working to help support the local causes which are the lifeblood of many communities.

“It has been fantastic to work with The Strawberry Line Society which is close to our hearts here in Cheddar and everyone working here has found our partnership really rewarding.”
