A married couple celebrating their 40th anniversary have raised £2,000 for a leading heart charity after asking for donations instead of presents.
Denise and Trevor Fudge, owners of The Anchor Inn, recently celebrated their ruby wedding anniversary with a private party.
The business owners decided to charge a small amount for drinks to donate to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) in memory of Sidmouth man Jon Hayman.
Mr Hayman was 27 when he died suddenly from a heart attack six years ago.
In his memory, his parents Marion and Robert set up the Jonathan Hayman Memorial Fund with CRY.
