A gala ball has raised hundreds of pounds for a project which is helping to transform the lives of young people in Weston.

Revealed Projects put on a three-course meal with entertainment and an auction at the Winter Gardens.

The initiative helps children and teenagers with issues such as bullying, online safety, abuse, body image, self-esteem and establishing healthy relationships.

"We are thrilled this event raised £3,330 of the outstanding £17,000 towards continuing the work of Revealed Projects, as well as raising awareness of the work we do and the different pressures facing young people."
