Honiton and District Lions Club has donated £2,000 to children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
The money was raised from the club’s annual duck race, which enjoyed a record turnout when it was held in Honiton, in August.
Club president Brian Richards and past president Steve Guilbert presented the cheque to CLIC Sargent’s Joy Petley at a club meeting at the Deer Park Hotel.
Lion Bob Francis said: “We are delighted to support CLIC Sargent, and the money will be used to support families whose children have cancer in East Devon.
“There are 29 families in East Devon that CLIC Sargent currently supports, two of which are in Honiton.
“This is a very worthy cause and we don’t usually associate children with cancer and the problems it can cause families.”
