The Budleigh Lions Club had a record number of stalls at their annual Bank Holiday Monday Fayre on August 28.

Among the 30-plus local charities and other organisations with stands on the seafront were the RNLI, Seachange, Fairlynch Museum, Budleigh Literary Festival, Hospiscare, the Community Workshop, Team Rollocks with their Atlantic Rowing boat, and Budleigh in Bloom.

The Lions had their own stall selling puzzles, raffle tickets and treasure hunt pins, raising money to buy a mobile defibrillator for use at events in and around the town. 

President Richard Allen said: "This is the most stalls we have ever had, twice as many as last year! 

"It was lovely to see everyone out and about enjoying the Bank Holiday sunshine and supporting local charities. 

"A lot of hard work has gone into organising the Bank Holiday Fayre and I must thank all the Lions involved, particularly Lion Kim Holmes , our event organiser, and all the organisations and individuals who have had stalls and tables this year.

"We are extremely grateful for the support of the local community and visitors to the town. Without their support we wouldn't be able to do what we do. The funds we have raised will help us to continue to support other local charities and good causes and hopefully the charities who were at the Fayre raised lots of much-needed funds."
