FUNDRAISERS who cycled to Africa and back and a charity champion have handed Sidmouth Living With Cancer Support Group a double cash delight totalling £4,373.
Doug Millar and his uncle Rob, who cycled 3,000 miles to Morocco and back in September, recently handed a cheque to the new presidents of the charity, Pat and Eddie Cannings.
Bill Lankester, chairman of the valued cause, said he was “forever grateful” to the duo for the £4,073 they raised.
Another funding boost came from Win Manley, who netted £300 for Living With Cancer at a coffee morning at her home in December.
The event also bagged £500 for Devon Freewheelers - a charity that delivers urgent medical samples, drugs, surgical equipment and donor organs across Devon for the NHS at no charge.

“Our thanks go to Win and to all of her helpers and to those that supported the event.”
