A Sidmouth charity shop has answered an appeal to help an ongoing fundraiser for the Admiral Nurse Campaign.
The WESC Foundation, in High Street, is showcasing a machine-stitched king-sized quilt in its windows to boost a year-long raffle organised by the Sid Valley Memory Café and the Sidmouth Patchers and Quilters.
The quilt, which is called Blue Horizon, was made by Seaton resident Moira Fox, who donated her creation to raise money for a local cause.
In March, the patchers and quilters called on businesses and groups in the town to get in touch if they wanted to sell tickets and feature the quilt in their window or at an event. The group hopes to raise up to £8,000 for the campaign.
WESC shop manager Sharon Green was told to ‘go for it’ by her bosses and has already raised £50 in raffle tickets.

She said: “It’s something for local people. We are part of the town and we want to put in as much as we can into it.
“It [the quilt] is beautiful, I have never seen anything like it. We have had people from other quilter organisations and they were saying it’s perfection at its best.”
