Sidmouth Living with Cancer and Dream-A-Way have shared in £900 raised at a fundraiser’s annual coffee morning.
Win Manley, the Sidmouth charity’s president for 2015/16, has raised cash with the events every year since 2003.
“There’s no magic wand,” said Win. “It just happens, with the help of everyone.
“They’ve always been well supported. I’m waiting for the year I can announce I raised £1,000.”
She started the events with her husband Richard in 2003 after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
