in Need @ The Royal Castle
Congratulations once again to Nigel Way and the staff of the
Royal Castle Hotel who
worked even harder than Terry Wogan last Friday to raise
funds for the BBC Children in Need Appeal! Over £4000 was
raised from various events including a coffee morning,
raffle and the now regular auction of a vast range of
donated items, put under the hammer by Nigel himself.
Lots ranged from designer clothing and jewellery, through
original paintings to a helicopter trip along the Dart. If
you were unlucky enough to miss this excellent night, you
can still make a donation to Children in Need; just call in
to the Royal Castle Hotel and ask for details.

Mayor, founded the
