A charity event run by two friends has raised £5,500 for good causes.

Callie Pothecary and Jemma Milton organised Make The Point in Kewstoke last year, and held the event again in the summer.

The event involved a 10k run and family fun day, and raised money for the duo’s chosen charities, Tiny Tickers and Chicks.

Tiny Tickers trains medical staff to detect heart problems in unborn babies, and the charity is close to Jemma’s heart as she lost her firstborn in 2010.

Chicks gives disadvantaged children respite breaks to create positive memories for them.

The two charities were each given half of the £5,507 raised and Callie and Jemma met the staff to hand over the cheques.

Make The Point will take place again on July 8, starting at Kewstoke village hall, in Crookes Lane, at 9.30am. To sign up, visit www.eventbrite.co.uk and search for Make The Point 2018.
