22 January 2019 chsw

Royal Marines based at Instow have been stepping up their fundraising support for Children’s Hospice South West.

The 11 Amphibious Trails and Training Squadron, which raised more than £500 during a family fun day last summer, has now presented a further £671.71 to the charity following some festive fundraisers held on December 19.

Civilian Kevin Spencer organised in-house competitions and an auction following the camp’s Christmas dinner – all in aid of the charity’s Little Bridge House children’s hospice, in Fremington, which is just down the road from the Arromanches Camp.

He thanked the following businesses and organisations for their generous support and donations of auction lots:
