The Bristol Camper Company hosted an open day at its Peartree Industrial Estate unit, in Langford, and sponsored a Halloween cruise.

They provided hot refreshments before members of the Vee Dub Family events team convoyed out to The Failand Inn, where drivers enjoyed a chilli supper and live music from The Sirens.

A total of £326.50 was raised for the family of Sarah Rooke, a former Vee Dub Family member, whose son Luke took his own life.
