A group of ladies which meets in Dunkeswell have made a donation to Honiton transport charity TRIP.

The Ladybirds, which holds informal meetings once a month at Dunkeswell Village Hall, is committed to fundraising for a local charity which chosen each year at our December meeting.

The group’s fundraising events are carried out throughout the year including a ‘flower of the month’ competition where members put pennies against flowers bought along by members, and culminating in November, a Christmas fayre held in Throgmorton Hall.

The fayre offers various stalls, including homemade cakes and pastries, handmade crafts, tombola, festive gifts and a raffle to win a hamper full of Christmas goodies.

The Ladybirds’ charity of choice for 2017 was TRIP. Val Royle, trustee and founder member of TRIP, visited the group’s meeting and was presented with a cheque for £700.

The Ladybirds’ chosen charity for 2018 is the WESC Foundation, the specialist centre for visual impairment.
