Two churches have been given a financial boost from a Weston supermarket.

The Asda Foundation presented £800 to the Holy Trinity Church, in South Road, and St Paul's Church, in Walliscote Road.

The money will help the churches to run their week-long holiday clubs in the summer.

The Healthy Holidays Grant was started last year by the foundation to assist local holiday clubs to provide healthy meals for children attending the groups during the holidays.

Asda community champion Clare Virgo had the 'great pleasure' of presenting the cash to the two churches.
