A brass band has raised hundreds of pounds for Springboard Opportunity Group.

North Somerset Community Brass Band chose the group, which helps children with additional needs, as its charity of the year and managed to raise £375 through concerts and collections.

Band members visited the charity’s base at Ashcombe Children’s Centre in Weston to learn about its work, meet staff and service users, and donate the money.

A band spokesman said it was a great experience.

They said: “It was lovely to meet children who benefit from this valuable charity.”

Springboard was founded more than 30 years ago and now supports around 100 children and their families every week.

However, it relies on donations to allow it to continue carrying out its work across North Somerset.
