The Worle Lions Club hosted its annual family fun day to raise money for charities.

Bank holiday Monday saw people of all ages head to Baytree Recreation Ground, in Locking Road, to take part in games, speak to charities and enjoy a cheeky tipple.

Stalls filled half of the ground with people selling baked goods, toys and games.

Cheddar Lions was also down to support its sister club with a traditional coconut shy while the Worle group put toy pigs head-to-head in races.

The event is one of the Worle Lion’s main money raising functions, with funds raised being put back into the community.

The fun day also provided a platform for other charities to do some fundraising, with stalls this year from Children’s Hospice South West, the Weston Freewheelers Blood Bikes and Rosie-May Edwards appeal.
