Hold on to your hat, its Ted's Big Day Out
Hundreds of people across north east Somerset donned brightly-coloured wigs and wacky hats to support people with cancer.
The annual Ted's Big Day Out fundraising event organised by the Forever Friends Appeal saw schools, businesses and organisations across the district using their heads for a good cause in more ways than one.
Well-known mascot Big Ted travelled across the area in a Vauxhall Meriva donated by Platinum Motor Group.
Nicknamed Ted's Truck, the car had been decorated in bright graphics designed to catch the eye of motorists and pedestrians.
At the Royal United Hospital, visitors were entertained by singer Sam Nolan, who works there, and the hospital choir, made up of staff from different departments.
In line with the headgear of the day, there was also a game of pass the hat, where the last participant standing won a meal for two.
Head of fundraising Tim Hobbs said: "Fun was had by adults and children all over the hospital catchment area on Friday to celebrate our annual fundraising day – Ted's Big Day Out.
"I would therefore like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who got involved, as with their help we will be able to build a new cancer centre which really will help transform care for patients and their families.
"It is currently too early to tell how much has been raised from the day, as it can take a while for us to collect everyone's fundraising together, but the support was truly fabulous.
"I therefore think the day looks set to have raised tens of thousands of pounds for the appeal."
Pupils at Norton Radstock College took part, and raised more than £200 for the appeal.
All the money raised will go towards the Cancer Care Campaign, to build a new cancer centre bringing services under one roof at the RUH.
