A cheque for the amount

Artist Andrew Coates donated two paintings to a fund-raising exhibition, organised by Ursula and held at Seaton Town Hall at the end of May.

Tina Stokes, Vince Peterson and Don Cummings also donated highly collectable works.

Ursula said: "Without these kind contributions, due to the recession, we would not have been able to present a cheque for the sum of �3,500."
