BLIND and visually impaired people in Sidmouth got a boost last week after shoppers helped bag a much valued club £330.

Waitrose handed over the cash to grateful members the Sidmouth Blind Club in St Peter's Church Hall, Sidford, last Monday as part of its Community Matters scheme.

The club, which provides a lifeline for 24 local people with restricted sight, has been running in the town for nearly 50 years, and its organiser for 37 of them Mary Trilsbach, 79, said the cash will go towards a "special treat" cream tea.
