A Westward Ho! businessman was astounded when he set himself a challenge to collect a ton of food in a week - and ended up with four.
Steve Taylor. who owns Westward Ho! Hardware Stores, wanted to collect food and basic supplies for the charity Harbour in Bideford.
He put an appeal out on Facebook, hoping to receive some support from local people.
But he was amazed when dozens of local people and businesses got behind the campaign in a matter of days.
