A charity event held in the Manor Gardens for the Alzheimer’s Society has been hailed as a great success, raising £230 for the charity.

Despite the less-than-ideal weather conditions, the turnout to the event was good, with holidaymakers and Exmouth residents alike enjoying the range of stalls on offer.

The event was organised by Maeve Hannah, who said: “I would like to thank the local businesses who generously donated raffle prizes, the deputy mayor Bill Nash for drawing the raffle, East Devon District Council for making the gardens available for free, and all of my family for their help preparing and on the day.

“Special thanks to Ella, Freya, Esme and friends - you definitely have a future on The Apprentice!”

The Alzheimer’s Society runs weekly Singing for the Brain sessions on Tuesday between 2pm and 3.30pm at Brixington Community Church, for anyone with memory difficulties, and is always on the lookout for new volunteers.
