Sisters Edie and Lois McGowan were busy making fruity treats in Newton Poppleford last Tuesday (August 7) in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The duo along with friend Esme Jolly raised nearly £29 selling to builders and contractors working on the development at King Alfred Way.

Also doing their bit were friends Beryl and Molly Rosevear, Chloe and Jamie Gratton and Molly and Grace Clarke who joined forces to raise £12.50 for Devon Air Ambulance.

The group worked together to create a gymnastics routine too, during FolkWeek.

Grace, 11, recommended they supported Devon Air Ambulance as she had been on the beach when the charity’s helicopter landed as part of a rescue operation at the end of July.

Her mum Jane said: “It was only a few pounds, but every little helps.”
