AT the recent St George's Day Service, East Devon Scouts raised £316.61 for children's charity CLIC Sargent.

Every day 10 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer. CLIC Sargent is there for them... with clinical expertise, emotional care and financial support in hospital, at home and in the community all over the UK.

Alison Bull, community fundraising manager for CLIC Sargent, received a cheque for the amount raised from East Devon Explorer Scouts Jamie Sparks, Sarah Bennett and Richard Molyneux.

Alison said: "CLIC Sargent is grateful to have been chosen by East Devon Scouts for their charity collection this year. It is heart-warming to know that the children we care for are remembered by young people who are more fortunate than them."
