Banking staff aiming to make a difference for those living with dementia have raised £180 through a fundraising tea dance.
Members of the Sidmouth and Honiton Lloyds branches joined forces to run the event for members of the Sid Valley and Honiton memory cafés.
Fifty-five people enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment in St Francis Church Hall, with music provided by Honiton musician Cameron Lemmer.
The staff were on hand to refill cups with tea and coffee, serve cake and sell raffle tickets.
On the day, they raised more than £90 which will be matched by the branch.
