A Somerset farmer's wildflower meadow is raising funds and awareness for a charity looking to raise awareness of Mitochondrial disease.
Ken Sellick, who farms near Stogumber, created the spectacular two-acre meadow four years ago.
Every year, he chooses a charity to raise funds via the general public who donate when visiting the meadow.
In the past, he has raised funds for Musgrove Park Hospital and Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.
This year, he has chosen the charity Elliot's Touch, which raises money to help fund the research for Mitochondrial disease and childhood cardiomyopathy.
Mitochondrial is a relatively newly diagnosed disease - first recognised in an adult in the 1960s and in the 1980s in children.
This beautiful field with amazing view and a place to picnic will be open today from 2-4pm and 6-8pm.— Elliots touch (@ElliotsTouch) June 22, 2019

1 in 200 babies in the UK are born with genetic changes which can cause Mitochondrial disease, that's a baby born every 30 minutes that could be diagnosed with this fatal disease.
