Sidmouth Carnival profit share-out
Three Sidmouth organisations benefit from town’s carnival procession profits
THREE �100 cheques have been presented to Sidmouth organisations by members of Sidmouth Carnival Committee.
The committee held a presentation evening at The Balfour recently, to hand over the proceeds from this year’s procession.
Carnival queen, Rosie Davis-Stokes, handed over one �100 cheque to Trevor Fogwill of St John Ambulance, while her princess, Jasmine Doorman, presented another to Matt Baker of Sidmouth Fire Station. A third went to Sidmouth Lifeboat.
Rosie had a dual role on the night as she plays with the town’s steel band, Steel Force, which provided music on the night.
