STOCKLAND village raised over £2,000 in aid of the Haiti earthquake appeal with a fundraising morning.

The village, which held a coffee morning with stalls, will be able to buy four Shelterboxes for the disaster area.

Organiser Jill Bellamy said: "This is a tremendous amount to raise from such a small community.

"It was very heart-warming to see over 100 people turn up for the event. There was such a warm community feel in the hall, with everyone chatting to each other.
