Organisers of Budleigh Salterton’s annual Gala Week have thanked everyone who helped raise a record total.

The annual eight-day charity event, organised by Budleigh Salterton Lions Club, raised more than £20,000 this year – a record total.

Lions chairman Geoff Paver said: “We would like to say a big thank you to their wives/partners, sponsors and all those who donate monies to help us put the week on, the charities and organisations who took part and to everyone who attended the events.

“Without your support we would not be able to co-ordinate Gala Week.”

The Lions are holding a meeting to begin organising next year’s Gala Week at the football club, in Greenway Lane, on Wednesday, September 20.

Anyone who wants to hold or get involved in an event during the eight days is urged to attend the meeting which starts at 7pm.
