Flag Day for Exmouth Charity held

CAMPAIGNERS who raised more than �200 at a recent charity Flag Day in the Magnolia Centre, are trying to track down a sympathetic passer-by who dropped everything to give them a helping hand.

The fundraiser raised �227.06 on behalf of Quiet Mind Centre.

The unique centre helps people on low incomes with emotional problems and other illnesses - but they need to raise money to find new premises.

The Flag Day was held by Friends of the Quiet Mind, a group of current and former patients who have vowed to fight to keep the centre open.

Sue Savage said: “It was a great day and we received �227.06 in donations, many thanks to all who helped and all who gave.

“However we do have a missing friend and would like her to contact us.

“She just came up to us and asked to help. We gave her a T shirt to wear and have not seen her since! She did a great job and we still have her watch she asked us to look after.

“We have some property of hers and would like to give to back!

“We would also like the thank The Shack for their help with our T Shirts.”

The money will add to the �1,500 grant awarded by the town council and help fund the Festival of the Quiet Mind fundraiser in Manor Gardens in August.
