Laura Flanagan and Sharon Boneham raised £415 for Weston Hospicecare, It’s In The Bag and Cancer Research UK at Milton Fish Bar, in Milton Road, on February 26.

People dressed in fancy-dress characters from films including Star Wars and Frozen competed for the best dressed prize, while a cake sale, colouring and a guess-the-name-of-the-teddy competitions also took place.

Emergency services personnel were on hand to give youngsters the chance to sit in a fire engine and learn more about the ambulance and police services.

Sharon is running the Bristol half marathon for It’s In The Bag and will take part in the 20-mile Mendip Challenge trek for Weston Hospicecare.

Milton Fish Bar, which is owned by Laura’s partner and is also where she works, supported the fundraisers and volunteered its premises to host the event.
