A widow who was left devastated after losing her wedding ring has been reunited with it thanks to a Sidmouth schoolgirl, writes Beth Sharp.
Helen Goodall, whose husband Ron died 11 years ago, realised her gold wedding band was missing last Monday.
After issuing a plea on Facebook, which was shared more than 100 times, and appealing to Herald readers, she received an email from the mother of a 10-year-old Sidmouth Primary School pupil saying it had been found.
The 52-year-old teaching assistant said: “I never thought I would see it again. I whooped when I saw the email. I was just over the moon.”
Helen had searched of all the bins at Sidmouth Primary School before going home and turning her house upside-down, retracing her steps from the weekend and digging up eight planters of bulbs and plants.
