Exmouth Inner Wheel have presented a cheque to their chosen charity of the year, which supports important natural habitats across East Devon.

In July, Exmouth Inner Wheel’s joint presidents Sue Naile and Val Whiteley and treasurer Iris Buteux, went to the headquarters of The Devon Wildlife Trust to present a cheque.

It costs around £2,000 a day to manage all 50 of the trust’s nature reserves, including places like Bystock Pools and Bovey Heathfield.

Such areas provide havens for nightjars, silver-studded blue butterflies and other priority species.

The members were shown around the old mill, the last working mill on the quay in Exeter and attended a changeover dinner, at the Manor Hotel, in Exmouth.
