A café which has sold refreshments to auction-goers in Honiton for the last six years is celebrating raising more than £10,000.

Chilcotts Auctioneers’ staff kitchen at the Silver Street saleroom - which is next to the livestock market - is staffed every sale day by volunteers from end-of-life charity Hospiscare.

Every penny raised goes to the end-of-life charity, which also runs a hospice in King Street in Honiton.

Liz Chilcott, who runs Chilcotts Auctioneers with her husband Duncan, said: “Back in 2011, we never dreamed that the fundraising would be such a success.

“Over the past six years, funds have built up steadily.

“We have been keeping a tally and were over the moon to see that the total had reached £10,000.”

The café is organised and run each month by Mary Bolshaw from Hospiscare, who is chief cake maker, along with Carol Sexton.

Chilcotts holds 12 sales each year, including four fine art and collectors sales in its Silver Street saleroom.
