Organisers of Honiton Carnival say nearly £2,000 was collected at the parade

Helen Turner, carnival committee member, said: “The carnival was brilliant - the weather was perfect and we had a really good turnout.

“Everyone had a good time, and when we spoke last, we had collected around £1,900.

“The money goes back into the carnival, and we will donate some of it to charity.”

Karen Wilson, secretary, added: “The night appeared to go well and was enjoyed by the crowd which included visitors from all over the country. The Devon Truck Show was a welcome addition to the procession who were collecting money for children’s charities.

“Although, this year, the carnival clashed with both Taunton and Okehampton carnivals there was still a good turn out of floats and walking entries.”
