Lympstone girls Abigail Clifford and Jasmine Freeman raised more than £300 for the Shelterbox Appeal with a village fundraising event.

Best friends Abigail Clifford and Jasmine Freeman raised more than £330 for the Shelterbox Appeal when the youngsters organised a village fundraising event.

The 10-year-old friends, both Lympstone Primary School pupils, approached local businesses, asking them to donate prizes for a raffle.

The dynamic duo also organised stalls and a cake sale to help boost funds.

The total is expected to increase when the pair helps out at an open day at the Harvester restaurant, in Exeter, because the chain has promised to donate half the cash raised on the day to the girls’ chosen charity. The pair thanked all the local businesses who generously donated prizes.
