Artists raise £500

CREATIVE community artists helped raise hundreds of pounds for a worthy cause this weekend.
A three day exhibition was organised by Yatton resident Deborah Redmond in a bid to support her son, 35-year-old Matthew Waldron.
Matthew and his friend Jon James plan to travel 450 miles in a sea kayak from the London Eye to the Eiffel Tower in Paris next year.
The duo are taking part in the challenge for the Motor Neurone Disease Association after Jon’s mother, Sue James, died from the disease and they hope to raise £50,000 for research.
More than £500 was raised at the exhibition which featured artists specialising in sculptures, paintings, stained glass, ceramics and even a wool spinner.
