Weston’s Grand Pier donated a six-foot Christmas tree to an adventure park to raise money for charity.
The prelit Christmas tree was presented to Puxton Park for use in its Festival Of Trees which began last weekend.
The festival is a seasonal event featuring gingerbread houses, wreaths and a variety of Christmas trees.
The pier also donated 15 raffle prizes to be awarded at an event on Saturday to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West and the Derek Mead Health Room.
Tim Moyle, general manager of the Grand Pier, said the venue was happy to lend a helping hand to the initiative.
