Crowds flocked to Beer’s annual Lifeboat Week to raise £1,270 for the RNLI.
The charity’s Seaton and Beer district branch put together a reduced programme of events, including a quiz night, music evening, street collection and coffee mornings.
Highlights included the 11th annual duck race day, which raised almost £600. The winning duck was sponsored by Gail Turner from Sidmouth. Some 54 Beer Primary School pupils entered a duck poster colouring competition.
Visitors were also treated to a man overboard display from the Lyme Regis lifeboat.
Wendy Cummins, branch secretary, thanked volunteers, all who attended and sponsors.
