Exmouth-based FriendsUK recently raised £1,200 hosting a morning of fun activities at the Devoncourt Hotel.

The coffee morning was attended by Exmouth mayor Councillor Jeff Trail, and included a prize draw, bring-and-buy and cake stalls, plus the grand duck race.

David Gray, organiser, and FriendsUK spokesman, said: “May I take this opportunity to thank all who were involved in our recent Macmillan Coffee Morning at the Devoncourt Hotel, Exmouth.

“A special thanks to stall holders, raffle and duck ticket sellers and cake bakers.
