The winner of Honiton and District Lion Club’s very first red duck race has handed over its prize money to benefit Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) - its chosen charity.

Staff from Homebase in Honiton presented a cheque for £250, which was raised through tickets sales to local businesses, to Maggie Little from DAAT.

The red duck race was a new addition to this year’s event at the Otter Inn, which sees hundreds of yellow ducks released into the River Otter.
