TRIP Community Transport Association in Honiton has received a much-needed cash boost.
The charity, which provides a vital transport link for people in the town and surrounding areas, has been chosen by the Original Factory Shop in Honiton to be its chosen charity for the year.
An Easter raffle was held over the Easter week raising £36.
A cheque was presented to TRIP volunteer Steve Brownridge by the store’s assistant manager Michaela Makowsky (pictured right).
A fundraising skittles night was recently held, which was attended by more than 40 people, raising more than £250.
The skittles event was won by Matt Woollacott.
TRIP volunteer Steve Brownridge thanked the staff of the Original Factory Shop for all their help with the event.
The store will be donating some of the proceeds from the sale of its bags for life to TRIP and will be holding a number of fund-raising activities throughout the year.
