This was just the second year the town has embraced the national Stand Up to Cancer campaign and it has proved a storming success, raising more than £1,000 and counting.
Businesses across Sidmouth were decked out in orange and black for the cause and people used the occasion as a good excuse to don their wigs, tutus and fancy dress.
Taste of Sidmouth sold special chocolate orange ice cream and cupcakes for the cause, while Roly’s Fudge Pantry got involved with their chocolate orange fudge.
Diane Davies, Sidmouth’s Cancer Research shop manager, thanked all of the businesses who took part, issuing a special thank-you to volunteers, without whom the campaign would not have happened.
The shop ran a tombola with fantastic prizes donated from businesses and local artist and volunteer, George Hutchinson donated two pictures.
