More than 200 people attended an annual garden fete hosted by an Otterton care home.
The summertime event held at the Old Vicarage raised £2,400; half of this will be given to Otterton Primary School, with the other half to be split between two charities chosen by residents.
The primary school will get £1,200 and both the RNLI and Millwater School will get £600 each.
This year’s event also marked the 30th anniversary of the Otterton care home, which was established by husband and wife Mike and Pat Parkin.
They have since passed it on to daughter Rebecca and her partner Dan Green.
