A Clevedon mum organised a successful table sale to raise money for the charity which has supported her family.

Angela Pass made more than £300 at the fundraiser which attracted a full house of  the sellers.

The money is for the National Autistic Society, a charity which has supported Angela and her family, since discovering that her 10-year-old son Joe had Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Angela said: "The charity has been very supportive to us. 

"In the past we have used the helpline and the money raised goes towards supporting parents and those with Autism.

"The amount we made is really good news."

On sale were a mixture of new items including jewellery, handcraft and cakes and good quality secondhand items.

And Angela with a little help from family and friends also served  tea, coffee, bacon butties and cakes and the morning event at The Barn, Clevedon.

So far Angela has raised around £700 this year for the charity from events including a festive tea party and school reunion.

The National Autistic Society is the UKs largest provider of specialist autism services. Its trained staff and volunteers provide a lifeline for 100,000 people affected by autism every year.
