Cancer Research UK officials left Axminster with more than £1million for their life-saving work last week.
They were at an auction run by estate agents Symonds and Sampson where a 105 acre farm at Blackdown was sold on behalf of the charity for a massive £1,117,000
The charity was the sole beneficiary in the Temple Farm estate which exceeded the guide price by nearly £200,000.
The sale consisted of a period farmhouse for complete renovation set in 55 acres, which sold for £662,000 and three lots of adjoining pasture land, marshland and coppice which sold for well above the guide prices, ranging from £6,344 an acre to £13,407 an acre.
