Proceeds have been totted up from a popular concert held in Honiton to support the mobility charity TRIP.

The event, held at the end of February, was organised and put on at The Beehive community centre by Honiton and District Lions Club.

Last week, the club presented TRIP’s office manager, Neil Hurlock, with a cheque for £1,500.

Lion Bob Francis said: “It was a brilliant concert and very well attended - we had a full house.

“It was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended and we have actually received requests to do something similar again because people enjoyed it so much.”

Bob also revealed that the Lions club made £2,000 from offering its 1kg giant Easter chocolate eggs out to raffle last month.

Nearly 20 business took up the challenge and raffled off the eggs.

The club also gifted eggs to six schools to help them raise funds.
