Exmouth Community College’s American football players are showing their support for a charity which works with victims of brain injury.

The Exmouth Raptors are planning to hold a number of events in support of Headway Devon.

The effort started with a plant sale run by Raptors in coach Rob Rooksby’s post-16 tutor group.

They raised £20, which they have now presented to the charity, along with further plants for sale, at its recent coffee morning.

Mr Rooksby said: “I was really impressed with their selling skills because they sold something like 30 plants in about half an hour.

“This is only the start of a number of events we will be running for Headway over the coming year.”
