IT is hoped Exmouth will look the pinkest it has ever been next week.
A number of pink-themed activities will take place at Exmouth Community College and at businesses in the town between next Thursday, October 22, and Sunday, October 25 to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Students at the college devised the fundraising idea with the help of Brian O'Brien from the school's community action project.
Mr O'Brien, 52, of Capel Cottages, has been helping students arrange events at the school and encourage businesses in the town to get involved.
