Sheila Dixcee died on March 14 at the age of 83 after a short illness.

A HONITON woman’s appeal for donations at her funeral has seen more than £1,000 raised for a mobility charity.

Sheila Dixcee died on March 14 at the age of 83 after a short illness.

She asked those who attended her funeral at East Devon Crematorium on April 12 to donate to Honiton-based charity TRIP.

Sheila’s husband Angus has been a volunteer driver for TRIP for almost ten years.

Neil Hurlock, the charity’s manager, said: “Before Sheila passed away, she mentioned us in her will for donations for the collection at her funeral.

“Once the donations were gift-aided, we received more than £1,000.

“It was much appreciated to be remembered in Sheila’s will and it is very nice to see Angus come back and start driving for us again.

“He has kept in touch with us all the way through and we are delighted he is part of our driving force again.”

Mr Hurlock has not yet decided how the money will be allocated.
