Firework display draws in record number of spectators and raises the most ever for charity.
The annual fireworks display at Pinewood Residential and Nursing Home in Budleigh Salterton saw the largest crowd ever in attendance.
Company director, Philip Sadeghi, said, ‘from the collection buckets on the night was £1,248 which will be divided equally between the Lions of Budleigh Salterton and Devon Freewheelers. A further £401 was raised by the Freewheelers from the barbecue making the total £1,649. That is the most we have ever raised and we had the largest crowd to ever attend the fireworks. The event is growing year on year! Whilst the event is sponsored by Pinewood Nursing Home, the Lions of Budleigh Salterton set up the fireworks and set them off from Jubilee Field and Devon Freewheelers provide the BBQ on the evening.’
Next year’s event is planned to be held on 4th November - so mark it in your diary!
