Folk singing group the Middle Bar Singers have once again hit the right notes to raise more than £1,100 for Sidmouth Lifeboat.
The group has been supporting the rescue service for 15 years and has raised in excess of £10,000 during that time.
Members gather at the Anchor Inn during FolkWeek every year to regale crowds with traditional folk songs with a nautical theme.
The singers also held a fundraising auction, selling lifeboat-related items.
On the night, lifeboat crewman Martin Barnard joined the group to lead a sea shanty.
