Summer festival with football for Children’s Hospice South West
PUBLISHED: 16:00 28 July 2016
A summer festival and football match in Kewstoke raised money for a number of charities.
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.”
