Littleham pub locals have handed over thousands of pounds to Exmouth and Lympstone Hospiscare thanks to the fundraising efforts of its regulars.

Customers at The Clinton Arms, Maer Lane, Exmouth, recently dropped 15,000 feet from an aeroplane, taking part in a tandem skydive, raising £2,195 for the charity.

This month more than 150 pub locals enjoyed Christmas bingo at The Clinton Arms, raising a further £1,212 for the charity.

Dale Dearden, landlord, said: “We are committed to supporting local charities and events.

“Earlier this month we held a Christmas Bingo for Hospiscare that was well-attended with over 150 participants and we all managed to raise a superb £1,212 on the night.”

Dale added: “This week we presented Hospiscare with a cheque for £2,195 that the staff and locals raised by completing a 15,000-foot sky dive last month.”
