Staff and volunteers of Sidmouth Voluntary Services (SVS) enjoyed a ‘Thank You Celebration’. 

The event at Twyford House was organised as a thank you to all those who give their time helping the elderly and vulnerable in Sidmouth.

Around 35 people were fed a selection of dishes cooked by the kitchen staff, followed by a prize raffle.

The manager of SVS Carol Drover-Taylor said: "It was a marvellous evening and an opportunity to meet with new and existing volunteers. Without our volunteers, SVS wouldn't be unable to provide medical transport and a daily lunch to local residents.

"I'd especially like to thank the following businesses for the wonderful prizes they donated: Bode, Milsons Point, Kyle Baker Photography, Co-op Sidmouth, Fields, Costa Sidmouth, Colyford Butcher, Sidmouth Jewellers, Coffee #1, Taste, Potburys, Waitrose Sidmouth, Anton’s Butchers Colyton, Fillfull Sidmouth, 14 Miles East, Jurassic Paddlesports, Country Bloomers, Phil the Barber at CT Shave Shop and Scentsy Wax and Warmers.”
