Valentine Ball raises hundreds for heart charity

A Valentine Ball organised by an Exmouth firefighter has raised more than �900 for a heart charity. Heart patient Dave Morley organised the event in aid of the British Heart Foundation charity.

Hundreds of pounds has been raised for the British Heart Foundation thanks to a Valentine Ball held at Exmouth Pavilion.

During the black-tie evening guests were served with bucks fizz before sitting down to a meal served by caterers Posh Nosh.

During the evening the party-goers bid for a number of auction prizes, were entertained with table magic and a disco.

Sold separately – raising an ‘amazing’ amount - was a leather jacket, donated by BKS Leather, which belonged to former World Superbike Champion James Toseland.

Exmouth firefighter and local BHF volunteer Dave Morley, who is a heart patient, said: “We raised over �900, which is an absolutely amazing total for the night.

“Thanks to everyone that donated prizes for the draw, the Pavilion staff for all their help, and the small committee that helped me organise the event.
