Exmouth in the pink for breast cancer awareness

Exmouth will be painted pink this month when the town’s Cancer Research UK charity shop holds a day of fun in The Strand.

The town will on Saturday, October 15, be decorated with 3,000 balloons as local businesses join in the fundraising as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Throughout the day, from 11am until 3pm, The Strand will be filled with fun and entertainment in a bid to raise funds for the charity and raise awareness of the disease.

Games, including name the duck, and stalls, selling items like cakes, have been planned for the day.

There will also be a donation station – a place where people can leave donations of goods to be sold in the charity shop.
