Members of a Weston football team dribbled a ball for three miles, all in the name of charity, in horrible weather conditions.
Weston Mendip Girls and Women’s Football Club took part in a Christmas fundraiser in aid of the club and the Bone Cancer Research Trust on December 15.
The girls dribbled a football for three miles from Uphill to the Grand Pier and back while wearing Santa hats.
A final fundraising total was not confirmed when the Mercury went to press.
The club’s welfare officer Marta Dance said: “The weather was atrocious which made things even more difficult, but the girls battled the wind and rain and managed to complete the challenge.
