Croyde campsite’s honesty box donations raise £3k for charity during the summer holidays.
ICE cool campers in Croyde have helped raise more than £3,000 for North Devon Hospice.
Holidaymakers staying at the Cherry Tree Farm in the village are asked to pay a donation to hire frozen ice packs and use the campsite’s mobile phone charging service.
During the eight-week summer holiday, the ‘honesty box’ style services have raised £3,050 for the hospice.
Campsite owner Dave Lang said they had run the initiative for the last 10-15 years and had raised more than £20,000 for the hospice.
