A sell-out audience enjoyed a hugely entertaining evening with The Lost Sound and The High C’s – two choirs whose very different musical talents complement each other wonderfully well. Over £800 raised from the evening goes into the charity fund being raised by Mayor of Dawlish, Howard Almond, to benefit THF.

Dawlish students bag-packing at Sainsbury’s
10 students from Dawlish Community College took part in bag packing to support THF recently at Sainsbury’s, Dawlish. The students worked in two shifts and raised £150 for the charity. Chairman of the Foundation Roger Kirk said:
“The youngsters were terrific. They were extremely well turned-out, worked hard throughout their shifts and were polite and helpful to customers, who were grateful for the help with their heavy pre-Christmas shopping. Thank you so much!”
Trustees are truly grateful to those who kindly donated to THF over the Christmas period. It is most thoughtful of you.
