More than £1,000 has been raised for charity by a party at an Exmouth care home.

The event at Manor Lodge raised money for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust – a cause unanimously chosen by residents.

Due to bad weather, the proposed garden party ended up being held indoors, but home manager Eileen O’Neill said this had not stopped the event, which was opened by Exmouth mayor Brian Cole and his consort Beryl, being a success.

She said: “It was still a success because the local community really supported us.

“The residents were delighted because it’s a grand sum of money, and everyone worked so hard, baking cakes and running the stalls.”

Manor Lodge said it would like to thank the mayor and consort for opening the party, and all those who donated to and attended the event.
