TWO Sidmouth Market stallholders have handed a �500 cheque to the Lord Mayor of Exeter to help disabled people fulfil their dreams.

Wendy Taylor and her daughter-in-law Judith, who run the fish and fruit and vegetable stalls at Market Place, won second prize in Sidmouth Lions' corporate duck race recently.

On Monday afternoon they handed over the cheque to Councillor John Winterbottom when he visited the market with his wife Joell, for his chosen charity, Dream-A-Way, which helps provide people in the South West with disabilities to take holidays or day trips.

Wendy said: "He and his wife Joell came in their regalia in a stretched limousine, which people were looking at."
