Kind-hearted shoppers have helped to raise more funds for the refurbishment of St Peter’s Primary School’s new library.

The Community Matters campaign run by Waitrose in Sidmouth has donated more than £200 to the Budleigh Salterton school.

St Peter’s has been fundraising for more than a year to create a new library on the Moor Lane site, where the former Carousel pre-school used to be.

Work to refurbish the building looks set to begin next month and the Waitrose cash will go towards building costs.

Headteacher Steve Hitchcock said: “The response from the community has been incredible and this money will be a valuable contribution to the overall build costs, which are significant and are being funded entirely by donations and grants.”

Anyone who wants to make a donation towards the project should ring 01395 443167.
