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 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.

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.
