Blagdon Friends Group put on a soup and pud event at the village club to raise money for Weston Hospicecare.

Kind volunteers made all the soup and desserts for the event which attracted a number of supporters.

Hungry visitors popped in for a chat and food and helped to raise £320 for the hospice, which provides care and support for people with life-limiting conditions.

The hospice's
community fundraiser, Sue Harding, said: "All the soups and puddings were made by volunteers and the event was very well-supported by Blagdon residents and hospice supporters."

The Blagdon Friends Group's next event is The Big Drop on March 7 from 10am to noon at the village club, in High Street.

People can take their donations to the hall where refreshments will be available.
