A LITTLEHAM woman was treated like a princess on Valentines - thanks to her husband entering a fundraising raffle held at an Exmouth supermarket.
Not long after Angi Dare had woke last Sunday morning, she was handed a bouquet of flowers, bottle of wine and chocolates by Helen Joscelyne, the community champion for Exmouth's Tesco store.
This was after her name and a loving message, left by husband, Ray Dare, was first to be pulled out in a special Valentines draw in aid of Muscular Dystrophy.
The Tesco store is backing Muscular Dystrophy as its charity of the year.
Mrs Joscelyne said: "It is a life limiting disease that effects all muscles in the body even around the heart and many children do not live after their teens."
She added: "But we can give them a better quality of life, helping to provide them with the equipment to make everyday-living easier, for them and their families."
