A 'STRAWBERRIES and Sparkling Wine Evening' at Kennaway House next month will raise cash for a Sidmouth cancer charity.

Hopes are high that the event on July 11, organised by the town's Macmillan Cancer Support Fundraising Committee, can boost the £14,000 raised for the cause last year.

Entertainment on the night will be provided by the Blackmore Singers and guests will be treated to a bowl of strawberries and cream, supplied by Macmillan Cancer Support champion Somerfield, and a glass of sparkling wine.

Fundraiser Tricia Heard said: "Last year locally we as a committee were able to send £14,000 to Macmillan as our part towards continuing their wonderful work in helping those living with cancer in our area. Please do come and have a lovely evening whilst helping Macmillan."

Tickets (£8) are available from Coles Cards and News in the High Street or by phoning Tricia on (01395) 519317.
