The trophy’s tour started at Weston’s train station on Tuesday and it will be taken to both the town centre and Kewstoke to raise funds for Kewstoke Community Farm.

The fundraiser coincides with the World Cup, which gets underway tonight (Thursday).

The cup will be on display at the New Inn in Crookes Lane and Commodore Hotel in Beach Road, Kewstoke, on Saturday night.

It will also be taken to Highbridge to support the town’s foodbank as part of Bakkavor Desserts’ community project scheme.

Organiser Clive Bush said he hoped the trophy would be a big hit with people and raise as much money for the charities as possible.
