More than £665 was raised for the Devon Freewheelers blood bikes in Honiton at the weekend - thanks to the support of The Volunteer Inn.

Darren Parsons and Rob Waldron, of the pub’s rider group, organised a ride out, which took in three counties and, alone, raised £292.

A barbecue, live music and raffle, hosted by landlady Chris Watson and generously sponsored by Otter Windows, made up the rest of the cash.

Daniel Lavery, who founded the Honiton-based charity, said: “It was truly an amazing sight.

“A true sense of pride and passion filled everyone’s hearts with this tremendous show of support.”

Russell Roe drove a support vehicle and Conor Lavery helped to distribute 400 leaflets during the day. Dishing up the food were Shelley Roe-Lavery, Lisa Roe and Tracy Hill.
