HONITON residents' generous response to the Haitian earthquake appeal has heartened members of the town's Rotary Club.
During two collections in Lace Walk, a total of �2,610 was raised.
"The collections were a phenomenal success," said Rotarian Mike Huxtable, who was one of those to make the collections.
"The amount raised is fantastic news. It is enough to pay for six Shelterboxes, with a little bit of money we had in hand."
