Exeter based charity Dream-A-Way and the Lions Club International’s appeal to provide clean drinking water around the globe were the beneficiaries. The ladies choose which charities to support each year with the money raised at their annual Flappers Christmas Fayre and from their cake stalls at Sidmouth Lions Club’s quarterly book sales at St John Hall.

Dream-A-Way charity provides grants towards holidays and outings for local people of all ages with special needs.
