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.”
