An Exmouth charity has held a day of fun and entertainment for the community in the Manor Gardens.

The event was organised by the Harry Cunningham Trust, to raise funds and awareness of its work.

Guests were able to enjoy donkey rides and live music, along with games and stalls.

Niki Cunningham, who founded the charity with husband Jamie after they lost their baby son Harry to vasa praevia in 2012, said the day had been a big success.

She said: “It was really good. I was really overwhelmed by the turnout. You never know what to expect, but it was packed all day.

“There were a lot of people who didn’t know about the charity, and were asking lots of questions, as well as people who know about us and came to support us, and people were really impressed.”

The event raised £902, which Niki said was more than she expected.

“Everybody seemed to have a lovely day. I dressed up as Elsa from [Disney film] Frozen and the children loved it.

“To put smiling faces out there from a fun day is really lovely for us, as a charity which came from something sad, to turn it round.

“We were supported by lots of local businesses, which was great. It was really wonderful.”
