“The Jolly Good Jaunt really is a great day out in a good cause,” she said. “Last year’s walk was loads of fun and we raised a lot of money for Hospiscare. This year’s promises to be even better.

“A hot drink and a hog roast awaits everyone on their return to Deer Park Country House Hotel. So sign up, get some tweeds on and get ready!”

The Jolly Good Jaunt is a 7.5-mile sponsored walk and begins at Deer Park, Honiton, on Sunday, October 23.
