THANKS to generous support from the community, East Devon Artists for Charity have been able to make a �3,500 donation to the East Devon branch of the Alzheimer's Society.
A cheque for the amount
was presented by Ursula Squire to Liz Purvey during the recent Colyford Goose Fayre.
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."
