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."

Mrs Joscelyne said �864.98 had been raised for the charity through a number of fun events, a commendable amount of money as a result of the store's generous and supportive customers.

Tesco will top up the amount by 20 per cent.
