A cheque for £1,400 was presented to the British Lung Foundation following a charity fundraiser.

The fundraiser was organised by the Exmouth Voice and Franklins and was held in the cafe bar in the Strand.

The event was inspired by Exmouth 10-year-old Harry Wright who has been fundraising for the charity because his mum Sarah needs a transplant.

The evening included an auction and a wine and cheese evening.

In total £4,500 has been raised in numerous events.

Harry was joined by dad Richie, grandad Steve, Roger Bourgein the town crier, Jacqui Heywood of Franklins and Richard Benford of the Voice.
