Traders’ early Christmas present for chemo appeal

Braunton businesses club together for local cancer appeal.

BRAUNTON businesses have shown some true Christmas spirit by raising more than �2,000 for the North Devon Chemotherapy Appeal.

Traders in Exeter Road joined forces to hold a Christmas fair with stalls, cream teas, a barbecue, raffle and home-baked cakes by the village WI.

Young visitors were able to climb on board a fire engine from the Braunton station and were even paid a visit by Father Christmas.

Gillian Sibley of Paint a Pot, who organised the event with Glenda Cooke of Two Ways Footware, said everyone pitched in to do their bit.
