AT Ashcombe Village Hall on July 5, the organisers of the monthly Charity Bingo (alias the ‘Cuddly Toy Gang’) arranged for donations totalling £3250 to be presented to five local charities.
£1250 to Dawlish Disability Transport, £500 to AIMs, £500 to the Strand Centre, Dawlish, £500 to St Nectans Church in Ashcombe and £500 to Talking Newspapers, Teignbridge.
The presentations were made by various members of Ashcombe Village Hall - in the 15 months since the Charity Bingo started, a total of £6000 has been donated to charity.
The Cuddly Toy Gang said they are very grateful to all the people who attend the bingo.
‘These popular evenings could not have happened without the help of: Tom Hunt -for keeping them in order, Sara Cartwright who calls the numbers so expertly, Frank & Carol Waister for their excellent refreshments and the bar staff who keep everyone topped up’ a spokesperson said.
