Churchill Preschool held a charity dinner, which saw 90 guests enjoy a high-quality meal at Yeo Valley's headquarters in Blagdon.

The dairy company provided a three-course meal and stylishly decorated the venue for the event.

There was a fashion show, a charity frock shop and market stalls for guests to browse on the night.

Churchill Preschool is a non-profit organisation and a registered charity - and the cash raised will doubtless provide the group with a handy boost.

The preschool's chairman, Fran Yandell, said: "This was the first time we'd hosted a fundraising event on such scale.

"We're so grateful to Yeo Valley for giving us this opportunity because there's no way we could have made it such a success without its support.
