Campaign turns sporty
CAMPAIGN 2010 took a sporty turn in Sidmouth on Friday.
A darts match at the Volunteer Inn, Temple Street, raised more than �360 for the Sidmouth Living With Cancer Support Group’s mini-bus appeal.
Group member Win Manley organised the event with landlord and landlady Steve Lea and Jo Jacobs. Win’s Ladies narrowly lost in the final game of the main event, 4-3. After the official game, five games of pairs took place with group members competing against pub customers.
“The group lost 5-0, but had great fun,” said member Bill Lankester. “Jo put on food, there was a raffle and a collection made in an old-fashioned gusunder or chamber pot.
“During the World Cup, Mark Haliwell, from Stonewells, sold football shirts at the Volunteer and he donated �50 from the proceeds to start the evening’s collection off.”

Steve donated �100, and with donations from customers, the evening raised �367.68 toward the mini-bus.
Jo said the pub did a lot of fundraising, so was happy to support the group’s efforts. “It’s a very good charity. Nearly every family is touched by cancer, so its work is important,” she said.
