KIND-HEARTED Topsham fundraisers have helped collect thousands of pounds for the Haiti earthquake appeal.

Visitors to Darts Farm helped members from Exeter Rotary Club gather �2,500 last month.

A spokesperson for the club said: "That is more than enough for five (shelter) boxes, containing bedding, water containers and utensils for 50 people."

Topsham School raised �871 for the appeal. Pupils took part in a sponsored silence and raised money from a raffle, a Tea for Haiti event and by having a non-uniform day."

It is estimated the number of people killed in the earthquake, Haiti's worst in two centuries, has risen to more than 150,000.
