A model railway show attracted hundreds of visitors when it was held in Locking Castle.
Keith Price has organised the show for the past eight years, and has now raised £44,400 for charity.
The event, held at The Campus in Highlands Lane, attracted 834 people who went to look at the model railway layouts, which were taken to Locking Castle from all over the country. Sunday’s event raised £4,018.
The money will be split between Weston Hospicecare and the holiday club for children which runs at The Campus during the half-term holidays.
Keith said: “Everything went smoothly and a lot of people appreciated how far the traders had come from.
“I will probably do another four years, with two shows a year, as I’m hoping to raise £70,000 for the hospice.”
The next show will take place on January 15.
