Over £860 was raised at events, with two hampers donated by Tesco being raffled.  Honiton Sea Anglers donated another £100.  But £3,000 from Honiton League of Friends means Honiton will benefit from haing three of the devices in the town alongside the new PAD in New Street outside I'm all about you - See page 7 for the full story.

You can read the full story by buying the paper at the various outlets - a list of which is availabe on their facebook page
