Wells MP James Heappey has praised the work of a mental health charity in the area.
Heappey visited Highbridge charity In Charley's Memory to mark the progress made in the five years it has been running in the district.
The charity was set up in memory of teenager Charley Marks, who took his own life when he was 18 years old. Charley had been a student at The King Alfred School, an Academy.
Heappey said: "I am so proud to have an organisation like In Charley's Memory in my constituency. I know the charity helps so many people in Somerset, and I am pleased the community have come together to help its fundraising efforts.
"I have raised its lack of funding with Somerset CCG and look forward to hearing back about this soon."
