Exeter Petanque group raises £1554 in four years for Devon Air Ambulance

Sunday 26th June saw the annual gathering at Isca Petanque Club of players from across the South west to take part in the Keith Brealey Trophy in aid of Devon Air Ambulance Trust. A total of 18 teams entered the competition. 

There was a good mix of experienced and less experienced players taking part but all with the same goal, raising as much money as possible for Devon Air Ambulance Trust and to have a good time. 

The event is held in memory of Keith Brealey, a former member of Isca Petanque Club who sadly passed away in April 2012. At the time of his passing he was club secretary and club captain. His son Robert Brealey took on both roles and organised the first charity match for September that year with the help of family and friends in the Devon Petanque Region. He has organised a match every year since with the exception of 2015 where due to bad weather the event had to be cancelled. So far the total raised is £1554.76.
