BIDEFORD’S Poppy Appeal collection has been boosted by visitors to a local attraction.

The Big Sheep at Abbotsham held a special day when £1 was donated for every visitor wearing red, white or blue.

The result was a donation of £403 by Rick Turner of The Big Sheep to Geoff Gittins of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal committee.

Anyone wanting more information about the Poppy Appeal or requiring poppies or a wreath can visit the appeal shop in Bideford High Street between 10am and 2pm or call Andy or Brian on 07580915493
