Villagers held a music marathon at the weekend to raise cash for children in Africa.
St Andrew’s Chruch, in Banwell, hosted the 12-hour extravaganza on Saturday to collect money to buy instruments for children living in Zambia.
Banwell is linked with the Chililabombwe parish, and the cash raised will be handed to the girls and boys brigade.
A medley of musical performances was enjoyed, including a show by Weston Sea Cadets.
Regular Skype video calls were made to the people of Chililabombwe throughout the event.
Churchwarden Kirsty Bowles said: “We had a wide range of local talent on show, from solo singers and guitarists to choirs and even a ukulele band.
“The fundraiser was held to buy brass band instruments.
