The Rising Sun at Sidford held its annual Mike Channing Memorial euchre tournament in aid of the RNLI.

Mike had always supported the RNLI and was inspired to remember the loss of life of the Penlee lifeboat crew in 1981.

The euchre evening was organised by Louis and Adam Squance, Mike’s son-in-law and grandson.

Winners were Mike Stone and Dave Morgan, who kindly donated their winnings to the fund.

A sausage and chips supper cooked by Jason the chef and sponsored by the Channing family made the evening an enjoyable, fun event.

A generous donation to the raffle by Gerald Carnell, which was organised by Amy Squance, helped towards the grand total of £340.

Mention must also be made to Jill Sroka, who excelled herself selling raffle tickets.

A fundraising cheque was presented to Ed Harrison.
