The £££s keep on rolling in for people
COMMUNITY groups chosen as part of a Herald campaign have received extra money thanks to private donations.
Yesterday The Herald revealed the grants donated to local causes as part of the £££s for People campaign, which led to Anthony Crouch from Eggbuckland getting in touch.
Mr Crouch chose to donate a share of £1000 to three groups covered in the campaign; Horizons Children's Sailing, South Dartmoor Riding for the Disabled Association and Morvargh Sailing Project.

"I'm in a position that I can give and I have got some bonds coming through. I would rather donate it than stick it in a bank – you can't take it with you.
"I chose those charities because they are outside activities and I prefer that sort of thing personally, when I was young I was involved in outdoor activities myself."
South Dartmoor RDA received £400 from Mr Crouch, while Horizons Children's Sailing and Morvargh Sailing Project each received £300.
Linda Barraud from Morvargh Sailing Project said: "It's so incredibly generous. Even a cheque for £25 would be great but £300 is fantastic. That's the first person who has contacted us through The Herald, it's been really lovely. It's always so nice to receive donations and this is a great surprise."
Horizon's project manager, Jon Worster said: "I'm gobsmacked. We rarely get one-off donations like this but they are most welcome. It will help us to get more children on the water.
"The money will be so useful. At the moment we have a safety boat with a trailer that needs fixing and the money can go towards that. It really is lovely.
"I just want to thank The Herald for the competition they ran and now it's a double whammy with the donation from Mr Crouch."
