Exmouth stallholders backing Billie’s Butterfly Fund have raised more than �1,000 for the cause.

Exmouth Market’s stallholders are celebrating raising more than �1,000 for an Exeter youngster diagnosed with inoperable cancer.

Earlier this month the traders donned butterfly wings to support Billie’s Butterfly Fund, in aid of four-year-old Billie Bainbridge.

Exmouth market owner Jerry Miller said some �1,957 was raised from the day – which will go towards the �200,00o target to fund potentially-lifesaving treatment.

Mr Miller said the cash had been handed over to the fund, adding: “It was received brilliantly by the public and all the stall holders that took part.
