Sidmouth nurse’s bid to tackle Indian poverty
THE history of Fortfield Terrace will boost a Sidmouth nurse’s bid to help an Indian jungle community battle poverty and illness.
Sally Dalton, 60, who works at Sidmouth Health Centre in Blackmore Drive, is set to set for a three-week expedition to Chhattisgarh in mid March.
Sally’s work with the Tulsi Trust over several years, including numerous trips to central India, has seen her help build a school and hospital in the rural setting.
“We’ve made an enormous difference out there,” she said.
A fundraising event at All Saints Church Hall on Friday, March 2, will go towards Sally’s trip to change lives and help others.

“No money will be wasted,” she added.
