A record attendance of 79 people attended a Feniton church’s coffee morning to raise money for an Exeter hospital ward.

The event was put on at St Andrew’s Church to raise much-needed funds for the Bramble ward at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

Churchwarden David Lanning said: “The £685 raised money is going towards the refurbishment of the outpatients department, which according to hospital staff is in need of brightening up. Although the church runs bi-monthly coffee mornings for various local charities they had never raised so much at one event.

“The cause certainly proved to be an attraction.”

Supporters at the event included several children who over the years had been patients in the ward.

The morning saw a raffle for a tea for two, donated by the Deer Park Hotel, handmade cards for sale and an area for children to draw, while staff from Bonhams carried out valuations.
