CAR dealer AJ Blackler at Newton Road, Torquay, found combining their resources with fundraisers with a local Scout group and Brixham College enabled them to raise almost £1,000 for Children in Need.

In the build up to the big day, customers were able to buy various Pudsey Bear-related items and also guess the amount of balls in a brand new Peugeot 107.

Brixham College sold Pudsey armbands and 1st Kingskerswell Scout Group held a pop up café and helped count more than 3,000 balls which had been scattered in a car at the showroom as part of a competition for customers where they had to guess how many balls were in the vehicle.

Penny Eustice, who helped organise the fundraising initiative between a popular local business and who also volunteers with her local Scouts, said: "It was a really fun day, we had lots of people come along to our coffee morning and support the Scouts to raise money for Children and Need.

"It really goes to show how the business and wider community can really work together to do something good and we look forward to working with others in the future."
