A men’s social group has raised £400 for Weston’s RNLI.

Clarence Park Baptist Church men’s group reached the total through collections after each of its monthly social events.

A presentation was made at its skittles and buffet night on November 27.

The group has held barbecues, crown green bowling tournaments and parties to raise the funds.

Chairman Alan Loveridge said: “We meet at different venues across Weston each month and have been collecting at each event.

“The work they do for Weston is fantastic and the RNLI is fully deserving of all the funding it gets.
