An international service organisation in Exmouth has raised vital funds for a suicide bereavement charity in the town.

Alison Jordan, of Pete’s Dragons, was presented with a cheque for £500 raised by the Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh.

The charity, which supports those who have experienced a loved one committing suicide, will be one of more than 40 that will be part of the rotary club’s annual summer fair on Monday (August 27).

They will be joined by other causes such as Hospiscare, the British Heart Foundation, FORCE and the Exeter Leukaemia Fund. Exmouth Gateway Club’s DJ will be providing the music through the day alongside band ‘Telstar’.

There will also be a special cheque presentation to Devon Freewheelers, a bouncy castle, face painting and many other attractions for the family. Opportunities to ask about joining the Rotary Club will also be available.

The charity summer fair will be taking place between 9am and 4.30pm.
