A project for Weston-super-Mare primary schools to show young people how they can help to make their communities safer needs funding.

Four schools will be involved in a scheme called What Would You Do? run by the West Country branch of Crimestoppers, Avon and Somerset police and drama company Unique Voice.

The project for year five children will allow them to take part in creative workshops and then put on a drama and film performance at The Playhouse.

Children will learn how to report crime and stay safe.

Organisers are appealing for £21,885 on the crowdfunding website Spacehive.

Walliscote, Windwhistle, Bournville and Milton Park Primary Schools will start taking part in workshops in April, with the final performance scheduled for June 26.
