Plant sale raises £500 for air ambulance night landing site

UPLYME & Lyme Regis Horticultural Society has donated £500 to the King George V Playing Field for its night landing facility for Devon Air Ambulance.

The £500 donation came from funds raised by the horticultural society’s annual plant sale and coffee morning held at Uplyme Village Hall.

A crowded two-hour sale saw a wide range of vegetable plants, herbs, perennials and bedding sold to eager purchasers.

The sale of donated cakes, jams and produce also contributed to the fundraising. In total, the morning raised around £800.

The King George V Playing Field is one of several charities supported by the horticultural society, with its summer show in July also raising funds for good causes.
