Easter chicks help keep medics flying

Chocolate-filled cuddly toys help produce egg-cellent sum for Devon Air Ambulance at Seaton fund raiser

EASTER chicks were “flying off the shelves” at a fund raising coffee morning in Seaton to aid the Devon Air Ambulance.

Sales of the knitted toys, with a cr�me egg inside, helped supporters raise �231 for the charity.

Organisers of the event, at Eyre Court Hotel, also sold cakes and scones, with clotted cream and strawberry jam, while musical entertainment was provided by Pam Cowell, on her electric piano.

A special Devon Air Ambulance cake was made by Eyre Court chef Shaun Llewellyn and slices were later sold to aid the fund.
