PINK was the colour as staff and customers at the Butchers Arms in North End raised £520 for the Breast Cancer Campaign on Thursday.
Everyone drinking in the pub was asked to wear an item of pink clothing and join in the fun throughout the day.
Landlord John Powell said: "We had a terrific time and really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone really got into the spirit of the occasion."
The day was organised by staff member Linda Wathelet who has a friend who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
