Children’s hospice receives nearly £1k from Sidmouth’s Pea Green Boat

Since the Pea Green Boat restaurant on Sidmouth seafront opened, Nick and Helga Beer have donated £2,827.40 to Children’s Hospice South West.

“That’s not bad for 10 months,” said Helga, who is pictured, left, handing £924 to CHSW Sidmouth co-ordinator, Bev Thomas.

This was raised by donating £1 a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc sold and £1 from each £20 Christmas meal sold.

“We could have spent more than £1 on crackers and bits, but when people asked about crackers we said we’d rather it go to CHSW,” she said.
