An Exmouth charity which helps families bereaved by suicide has received more than £2,000 from a concert organised by the Rotary Club of Exmouth and District.

Rotary Club president Linda Wilson presented a cheque for £2,205 to Pete’s Dragons CEO Alison Hill.

The total included £1,400 raised by ticket sales for the Rotary Club’s Last Night of the Proms concert, and £805 from a raffle and bucket collection held by Pete’s Dragons staff and friends on the night.

Club honorary secretary Frank Hart-Venn said: “This figure demonstrated the support of the community for this well-run Exmouth charity.”

The concert, held at Exmouth Pavilion, was managed by Rotarian Graham Kirby, with support from fellow club members, and the choice of Pete’s Dragons as the charity to support was made by previous president Martyn Clegg.
