See The Future held its seventh annual fundraising bash at the Woodbury Park Hotel last week.

Founder Leanne Herrett said: “The ball raised an amazing £4,000 which came from ticket sales, games through the night and a live auction which included items from Sugar Ray Leonard, Jimmy White, hampers from local shops. This year’s auction was an extreme success. Another success was the reveal of the best project I’ve been working on this year and that’s the 2019 Ladies Naked Calendar.

“We had 17 amazing, brave ladies take part in this calendar in local Honiton work premises. These calendars are just £5 which you can purchase through the See The Future website.

“Thanks to auctioneer Graham Barton, guitarist Ben Cornish, singers Holly Ford and Tony lock, our DJ Chris Spencer and, of course, all of our guests.”
