Beer visitor attraction supports Parkinson’s UK and the MS Society
Representatives from two medical charities each collected cheques for £750 when they went along to the Pecorama model railway centre at Beer.
The money was raised at the attraction’s annual garden day, in July.
Visitors paid a special entrance fee of just £6 for the event, with £5 from each ticket sale going to Parkinson’s UK and the MS Society.
Sidmouth Steppers Morris Dancers and miniature donkeys from Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary added to the family fun at the event which raised a total of £1,500, to be split between the two charities.
Pecorama will be hosting another fundraising day, this time for the Exeter-based St Loye’s Foundation, on Saturday, September 10, with its first ever ‘Bake It Big’ event.
