ORGANISERS of a Somerset firework display are hoping the event will be a booming success after receiving a generous donation.

Cheddar Vale Lions Club has been sponsored £1,000 by Cheddar Garden Centre to go towards the cost of fireworks.

Lion member Pam Holmes said: "The fireworks usually cost around £2,500 so this donation will really help towards the cost.

"It is crucial we raise enough money for the firework display because everyone in the village loves to come along and we have a really fun night."
