Popular community carpentry course in Budleigh is given £400 boost thanks to town’s Lions

A cheque for £400 presented to a community workshop in Budleigh Salterton will boost carpentry, thanks to the town’s Lions Club.

The Budleigh Community Workshop said the funds will help pay for new woodcarving tools for an ‘ever-popular’ course teaching carpentry.

Richard Allen, president of the Lions Club of Budleigh Salterton, who presented the cheque, said: “The Lions have been supporters of the workshop since its inception, and we are always keen to support local community organisations and activities whenever we can.

“The workshop encourages and caters for people with different needs and has a very friendly atmosphere. If you haven’t been along to see what happens in the Old Fire Station then I would urge you to visit and see what it has to offer.”

Bill McDermott, chairman of the trustees of the Budleigh Community Workshop, thanked the Lions Club for its donation and support.

He said: “The Lions Club represents the best in our town and we should all be proud to have such energetic volunteers in our community.”
