Sidmouth residents have added another £880 to the Admiral Nurse Campaign kitty following the success of the appeal's charity Christmas cards.

More than 4,000 cards were sent out across the globe with a painted landscape of ‘Sidmouth in the snow’.

The Sid Valley Memory Cafe approached artist Margaret Adams to utilise her painting skills to boost the fundraising effort.

Mrs Adams said: “They have gone all around the world.

“They could carry this on to next Christmas and sell them again next year.”

The cards were sold in packs of 10 from Paragon Books in the lead up to Christmas.
