SCHOOL children from Bristol have been given a day out at Puxton Park in Weston-super-Mare thanks to taxi drivers from the city.

Yellow Cabs Bristol linked up with Woodstock School in Henbury, as the school is dedicated to helping and supporting children and getting them back into the community and achieving their full potential.

Taxi drivers gave their day up yesterday (Dec 4) and decorated their cabs with balloons to take 54 pupils from the school to Puxton Park in Hewish, where they enjoyed a fun-filled free day out.

Organiser Emily Lenthall, said: "Up until five-years ago Bristol City Council used to support this event and every Christmas would take children for a day out.

"Here at yellow cabs and working with Puxton Park we wanted to give these 54 children a Christmas day out to remember.

"They were all taken to the family-run farm in Hewish where they were met by Santa Claus, Weston's Town Mayor and Bristol celebrities.

"Each child then visited the Igloo themed grotto where they received a gift and enjoyed an action packed day out."

The event is part of Puxton's charitable efforts to help children less fortunate and runs alongside its toy appeal collecting gifts for Children's Hospice South West and for children staying in local hospitals.

Alistair Mead, Puxton's managing director, said: "We were thrilled to team up with Yellow Cabs Bristol to offer youngsters a fun day out.

"We are committed to helping others and hope this experience made a difference to their lives this festive season."
