To date they have managed to raise a staggering sum of £30,000. The funds have gone towards local organizations throughout the area.
Lyme Regis Basks in the Glory of Bingo Mania
Reporting from Lyme Regis, View Online has made it known how the Lyme Regis Community Association (LRCA) has managed to host multiple bingo sessions.
