A SUMMER Fete and Cream Tea, held at Waterbridge House, Morchard Road, near Crediton, was a huge success and raised valuable funds for Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF).

There were numerous stalls, including a tombola, plants, home-made cakes, bric-a-brac, books, and more and various competitions.

A barbecue also continued during the evening. Members of Copplestone Choir gave several excellent performances during the afternoon. The weather was glorious and visitors were able to sit outside for delicious teas.

Nick Cordwent, Chairman of the Crediton Group of ELF ran the draw, which had many prizes.

The competition to guess how many sweets in a jar, was won by Mark Bradford and the guess the date of the Teddy Bears Birthday, was won by Ivor Bradford (no relation) whose guess of March 19 was the closest.

Nick expressed his thanks to everyone who supported the event.

The next fundraising event will be a performance by the QE Jazz Band which will take place at Crediton Methodist Church on Friday, July 6, at 7.30pm.

Admission is £5 which includes light refreshments. To reserve tickets please telephone Jan Martin on 07980 347 231 or purchase on the door.

ELF supports the work of the Haematology Centre at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, which treats the region’s blood cancer victims, performs bone marrow transplants and conducts research into the causes and treatment of the disease.
