Scaring up funds with special donation
AN adventure park had a surprise delivery of scarecrows ahead of a special charity bonfire night on Saturday.
Puxton Park received 30 straw statues from the Harvey Hext appeal – the adventure park's chosen charity.
The scarecrows had been on show in Winford, raising money for seven-year-old Harvey's treatment of his rare form of cancer.
Puxton Park, near Weston-super-Mare, helped raise hundreds of pounds towards the appeal through ticket sales for the bonfire night.

The night saw fireworks, entertainment and a huge bonfire where the appeal's scarecrows were burned. Organisers of the appeal were also on hand to collect donations for the fund.
This year's scarecrow exhibition in Winford also gave the charity a fundraising boost.
The previous year's event took the fundraising pot to £150,000 of the £300,000 needed for Harvey's Neuroblastoma treatment, which is not available on the NHS.
