STUDENTS at Great Torrington School have made a book of war poetry and are selling it to make money for St Dunstan's charity for blinded ex-servicemen.

Created by Year 9 students with the support of the school's enterprise scheme, the book was completed to coincide with Remembrance Day and has been inspired by their work on the war poetry of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon.

The book is available from the school library, Great Torrington library and The Mole & Haggis book shop and costs �1.50, with all profits going to St Dunstan's.
