A painting of Birnbeck Pier has been sold to raise money for the trust trying to restore the derelict structure.

Weston artist D-NEK donated the work to the Birnbeck Regeneration Trust, and it has now raised £500.

The picture has been hanging in Relish Café And Bar, in West Street, so people could view the work.

Trust secretary Heidi Griffin said: “The Trust would like to say a massive congratulations and thank you to local couple Doug and Zena Trapnell who were the winning bidders for our beautiful one off picture of Birnbeck.

“We hope you enjoy your picture for years to come.”
