Pub regulars in Worle have helped to raise £5,000 for Weston General Hospital’s children’s unit.

The Nightjar pub, in Nightingale Close, has been supporting the hospital’s Seashore Centre since it opened in 2007.

Donations from regulars have helped to raise around £4,000 every year, though the collection reached £5,000 this time around.

The money was raised through weekly raffles and secondhand book sales.

Landlord Di Bradley said: “I’m so proud of my customers, they’re so generous and it’s such a good cause.

“I thought last year’s total was hard to beat but yet again they amaze me.

“I have some amazingly generous customers who always support a good cause.”

The latest donation takes the Nightjar’s contribution to the Seashore Centre to more than £45,000.

The money has paid for medical equipment and child-friendly furniture.
