£955 was raised from the sale, mainly by watchkeepers, of our 2017 calendar and again this was sponsored by Valeport who are based at St. Peter’s Quay in Totnes.

The Friends have several yellow charity collection boxes placed with various local businesses (£990-77) and at the Lookout (£2124-66) which raised a total of £3,115.43. Therefore the total fundraising income for the year was £8,392.42.
