VETERANS and volunteers raised £2,050 for charity by collecting cash from drivers on a toll bridge.

The team of 10 manned Swinford Toll Bridge, near Eynsham, from 8am to 6pm on Bank Holiday Monday, with Witney MP Robert Courts and several councillors stopping to help.

All proceeds went to Combat Stress, a leading charity for veterans' mental health.

Car drivers must pay 5p to cross the privately-owned bridge, but many gave much more, including one motorist who handed over £20.
