The money will help to fund the Seaton Hospiscare@Home service.

League manager Lycia Moore said: "I would like to thank all our wonderful volunteers for their time and commitment in making this event such a success, not only on the day, but also for all the hours they put in behind the scenes throughout the year.

"Thank you also to our local community who, over the last 12 months have donated such wonderful items to us, enabling us to put on such a splendid sale of Christmas decorations, festive clothing and new gifts.
