Club gives £200 towards Seaton supermarket’s fund raising for the Devon Air Ambulance

Seaton and District Lions Club presented a giant cheque for £200 to its local Co-op store on Friday.

Members had raised the money during a collection day outside the Harbour Road supermarket earlier this year.

They returned to present the money to manager Di Hawkins to donate to the Co-op’s nominated charity this year – the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

Lions officials expressed their thanks to the store for allowing this and other collections to be made there during the year. It enabled them to donate money to worthy local people and causes.

The latest collection at the Co-Op, on Sunday, will be presented to the League of Friends of Seaton Hospital.
