Say Yes to Life Karate Club (SYTL), based at Honiton Leisure Centre, is hoping to raise £5,000 to fund a trip to the Seiwakai Open International Championships in Essex on November 10.

The campaign has been kickstarted with a £200 donation from Wales & West Utilities via gas engineer Colin Freemantle, who has family links to the club.

SYTL fundraising co-ordinator Clair Freemantle said: "We are thrilled that Wales & West Utilities has kickstarted our fundraising campaign and, on behalf of everyone at the club, I'd like to thank them.

"We are hoping to raise £5,000, which will go a long way to making the trip happen.

"We competed in the championships last year and it was such a positive and fantastic experience for our members that we wanted to compete again."

SYTL are planning further fundraising activities, including supermarket bag-packing, car washes and cake sales amongst other events.
