Christmas tree festival in Cotleigh raises £755 for the charity.

It has been a great start to 2014 for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust - the charity was presented with a generous cheque for £755 from Cotleigh Parish Church.

Pam and Kevin Lane, and Gillian Broom joined staff and volunteers at the charity’s shop in Honiton last Wednesday to hand over the donation.

The money was raised during a Christmas tree festival in the church, which raised more than £15,00. This was split between the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and the parish church. Those who helped and supported the event have been thanked for making the festival such a huge success.
