The event took place at Kewstoke’s village hall, where there were stalls selling crafts and cakes, a tombola and bouncy castle.

The Yatton under-12s team played the Priory Pumas in a game of football.

The event raised money for the Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) and the Harvey Hext Appeal.

The money donated to the CHSW has gone through the Raise A Smile For Harry campaign.

Harry, who went to Mendip Green Primary School, died from leukaemia in 2011, 
but he and his family spent time at CHSW.

The Raise A Smile For Harry supporters played football against First Bus Weston.

Neil Bayliss, who helped 
to organise the football 
said: “I am pleased to say 
that the day raised £1,630, 
all of which will be donated to CHSW in Harry’s 
name.”
