“Its not just the money, it is also the way you have raised the profile and awareness to those who might want to use our services so they can make the most of it.”

Employees voted to support Sidmouth Living With Cancer for 2019/2020.

The ceremony closed with the team of the year award, won by the 1809 café team.
