The Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton Friends of FORCE committee thanked everyone who supported its Gala Week cream tea, held in Budleigh Salterton’s Public Hall, which raised £563 for the charity.

A spokeswoman for the charity said: “We would particularly like to thank Tesco for donating the clotted cream and milk, and Chris, a wonderful lady who makes the 180 scones for us.

“Our thanks also go to Bodyshop, in Exeter, and to our supporters who generously provided raffle prizes, and to our volunteers, without whom we wouldn’t be able to hold this event.”

FORCE is a local charity which gives support to anyone diagnosed with cancer, and their families. The charity also provides equipment for the oncology department at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hopsital for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and funds research through the University of Exeter Medical School.
