SIDMOUTH’S Living With Cancer group is ready to go into top gear with the success of its mini bus appeal with Sidmouth Herald’s Campaign 2010.
With �25,000 in the kitty, every penny of which, apart from �7,000, has been raised by the public, it expects to place an order for the bus within the next two weeks, it’s leader, Bill Lankester, revealed on Tuesday.
He was speaking at Salcombe Regis where the group, one of three charities supported by this year’s Country Fair, received a cheque for �1,750 from the proceeds.
The vicar, the Reverend Roger Trumper, also presented cheques for �1,050 to Richard Huntington on behalf of Sidmouth Gig Club and for �720 to Emma Bagwell, chairman of Sidmouth Day Care Nursery.
