The money raised came from the sale of specially commissioned poppy appeal badge by Exmouth Town players, officials and supporters.

In all a total of £234 was raised and, on behalf of the club, chairman Stuart Shaw and Duncan Hamilton, who organised the badge sale operation, handed the cheque over to Tony Ferraro of the Royal British Legion.

All 100 of the badges that were commissioned were sold to raise the money. Duncan Hamilton said at the presentation that he was so proud of all involved with the football club who had got behind the idea, with the badges selling out in just a couple of days!
