RSPCA North Somerset threw an event where visitors could learn about its work to 'transform the lives' of animals.

The fundraiser, held on Sunday at RSPCA's Brent Knoll Animal Centre, featured a bouncy castle, coconut shy, crazy golf, and face-painting for families.

People could also race against each other on life-sized pony cycles.

An event spokesman said: "It was our busiest and most successful fun day to date.
