Weston Rotary club will pair up with one of the town's bakeries to raise money for Weston Hospicecare in the new year.

James' Artisan Bakery, on Whitecross Road, will join the charity to collect Christmas trees for the hospice across Weston, Yatton and Congresbury.

They will also be joined by North Somerset Council and Young Farmers from across the South West.
