A fundraiser in honour of a Weston father who died after suffering from Parkinson’s disease raised more than £1,000 for charity.
Amy Barron, aged 39, hosted a cake and tea afternoon at her home, in Locking Parklands, to thank Parkinson's UK for the support the family received.
Her father, John Barron, died aged 71 in March.
Attendees won prizes during a raffle and a game of guess the weight of the cake.
Amy told the Mercury John was a family man who believed in supporting local businesses.
