Sidmouth businessmen back tea-towel venture

Sidmouth in Bloom mark 40th anniversary with tea-towel fundraising campaign

SIDMOUTH businesses have backed a fundraising tea-towel venture by Sidmouth in Bloom.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary next year, Bloom president Joy Seward has had a special tea-towel designed and printed.

Now Mike Ford of Fords of Sidmouth (pictured right) and electrician David Gater, have each donated �100 towards production costs.

They are pictured with Jane Sutherland-Earl, Sidmouth in Bloom’s chairman, who said: “Having known both Mike and David for a number of years I thought they would not say no to anything we asked them.

“They are two delightful people, always ready to help in the town and support local organisations.”

Joy said a “very generous” donation from Tom Griffiths, who holds the deckchair concession in Sidmouth, would pay for a second batch of tea towels that will be sold, for �2 each, during Sidmouth in Bloom’s presentation night at The Knowle on Thursday, October 21.
