Charities supported by the late Sidmouth Herald reporter Kingsley Squire received a £3,000 boost from the Salcombe Regis Fair.
The events committee split some of the proceeds from the event between a trio of causes close to the 78-year-old’s heart.
The fair’s committee donated £1,250 to the Sid Valley Memory Cafe’s Admiral Nurse Campaign, £1,250 to Sidmouth Living With Cancer and £500 to Pancreatic Cancer Action.
Mike Newman, chairman of the fair committee, said: “The fair was dedicated to Kingsley and his charities. He used to say it was quintessential Salcombe Regis.
“We want to thank the residents who gave up their gardens and also say thanks for the support we have had from businesses and charities.
