THE Okehampton supporters' group for Exeter Leukaemia Fund is holding its annual meeting on Tuesday, January 27.

At present the group has a small but willing band of helpers, but is looking for some fresh faces to boost the group and avoid it folding.

In 2013 the Okehampton area, with help from Hatherleigh, Merton and other nearby communities, raised more than £21,000 for the charity.

This sort of money is much needed in the fight against leukaemia and helps provide facilities for families of patients.

The meeting takes place at 7.30pm at the Plymouth Inn.

If you are interested in being involved in the group but cannot attend the meeting, call Carol on 01837 52382 or Liz on 01837 54778.
