TRUSTEES at a Dartmouth charity have said a huge thank you to supporters for their fundraising efforts.
While tourists have flocked to Dartmouth during the summer months and enjoyed the town's annual regatta, Dartmouth Caring continued working as hard as ever with its weekly clubs and support groups as well as attending several fetes and holding fundraising days which have all been very successful.
The charity has also celebrated the third birthday of two of its clubs this summer, the Visually Impaired Reading Group and the Memory Café.
The charity has held several fundraising days during the summer months and raised almost £1,000 with three events, including at the regatta fete and the Stoke Fleming fete.
With the workload in the office continuing to increase and clients' needs becoming ever more complex, Dartmouth Caring relies on donations and the support of the local community more than ever.
Clubs such as the Memory Café will also soon be expanding to two meetings a month due to an increase in need.
The charity is working in close partnership with many different health professionals, the statutory services and other voluntary sector organisations to ensure the local community receives the best possible service.
Dee Nutt, chairman of Dartmouth Caring, said: "As trustees of this small local charity, we realise without the support from our community we would not be as successful as we are.
"We depend on the backing of Dartmouth's residents so would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us at every event this summer.
"The local community has been so generous and we can not thank them enough and hope to continue to provide the best possible service we can for Dartmouth."
