Hundreds of pounds was raised for a cancer charity in memory of a young Worle girl.

Raddy's Café Bar off Princess Square hosted its Cider Sunday event and race night.

The race night, which was held back in March, raised £2,002 for the Bone Cancer Research Trust, a UK charity dedicated to fighting primary bone cancer.

The cider event added an extra £292.50 to the final total for Weston's Team Bones - set up in memory of 11-year-old Mary Collard, who died in 2012.

Team Bones aims to raise awareness and as much money as possible to find a cure for the terrible illness, which 'took Mary from her family too soon'.

A Team Bones spokesman said: "The trust and Weston Team Bones can't thank Simon and Kylie and all their customers enough for choosing us as their charity this time."

The In Mary's Memory charity reached its half-million-pound target last month after years of fundraising.
