More than 150 people attended the event at St Andrew's Church, Sands Road, Paignton.

Music was provided by One Accord, Brixham Town Band, and a surprise singer, 13-year-old Millie Day, who received a standing ovation.

A service conducted by Father Roger Carlton with a parade of standards brought the event to close. Last year the branch raised just over £27,000 which helped towards the Devon county association total of £1million.
