The Tuckers Arms Raft Club at Dalwood donates £5,000 to worthy causes
Two Axminster charities have received large cash donations thanks to the Tuckers Arms Raft Club at Dalwood.
The fundraising group presented Arc - the Axminster based counselling service – with £3,000 and Axminster Care Service with a cheque for £2,000.
The money was received on behalf of the two groups by Catherine Davis and Caroline Lavender respectively.
During the past 25 years, the raft club has raised more than £50,000 for charities in Axminster, Honiton, Lyme Regis and the wider South West region.
* Arc provides vital counselling for people in crisis but is in danger of folding.
It has launched an urgent appeal to raise £30,000 by January so it can continue to operate.
It helps people facing bereavement, family crisis or life changing or threatening diagnoses.
Axminster Care Service provides a vast range of services, including transportation for medical appointments; hosting the Tuesday Lunch Club at the Senior Citizens Centre and assisting people who are in need of emergency funding.
