The Rotary Club of Exmouth Raleigh has presented a cheque for £700 to Exmouth Community College.

The presentation followed a recent charity fundraising concert at the college.

Rotary club president Gordon Parker and organiser of the evening Bob Worrel presented the cheque to college principal Andrew Davies. The money will go towards the college’s music department.

Organised by the Rotary club, the charity concert – raising funds for the college and for Rotary’s local, national and international charitable causes – was attended by more than 250 parents and friends. It featured entertainment from some of the college’s bands, together with musicians from local primary schools and Mill Water School.

“As with other years, the concert was of an excellent high standard and a tremendous success,” said a Rotary spokesperson.

“Everyone leaving the concert had a broad smile and all were very proud of the evening’s performances.”
