Kind-hearted Topsham residents have once again turned out to enjoy a coffee morning and support working animals in need.
The Brooke Hospital for Animals Topsham Supporters Group held its regular spring coffee morning at Matthews Hall.
There were stalls selling cakes, plants and bric-a-brac, and a raffle, and around 70 or 80 people attended, with around £570 being raised.
Group secretary Wendy Brookes said: “It went really well. We were quite surprised, given the current economic climate, but it actually did better than last year.
“The Topsham Supporters Group is only a very small group but we have got regular supporters who come to each coffee morning and they are always very kind.
“The Brooke is such a wonderful charity which tries to improve the lives of working horses and donkeys in some of the world’s poorest communities and thereby improves the lives of the people who rely on those animals.”
