A Topsham charity has received a £10,000 donation.

Estuary League of Friends received the money from Basepoint Exeter, owned by grant-giving charity The ACT Foundation, towards its proposed new community hub at Topsham Library.

Friends chief executive Rachel Gilpin said: “We thank the ACT Foundation and Basepoint Exeter for their support of a local community charity appeal fund. Our community hub will make so much difference to so many lives.

“The cheque was presented to some of our lunch club members who will all benefit by being able to attend the club six days a week in the new building instead of the present two days a week we are currently restricted to. You can see from their smiles, the enjoyment, companionship and fun they experience from one of our activities.”

The proposed hub will cost £1.8million. The charity is aiming for work to start in May 2017 for completion by January 2019.
