A charity fundraiser from Weston has thanked those who helped him raise more than £6,500 for the British Heart Foundation this year.

Paul Hobbs held a three-part fundraiser this year for the heart charity after revealing that its services saved his life from an aneurysm which required open-heart surgery.

The final event Paul held this year was a raffle fundraiser at the York Hotel, in St Margaret's Terrace, which has capped off a brilliant effort.

Mr Hobbs said: "All the events have been great and there are still more donations to be counted towards the final total.

"I have to give a big thank you to The York Hotel, Tony Billiterri, who performed on the night, and friends who made my 26th anniversary year of charity fundraising a great success with a big raffle and great entertainment.
