Dozens of stripy-topped Wallys found in Axminster during fund raising family day
Wallys were found hiding all over Axminster on Saturday.
Families turned out in force to track down the colourful book character in his stripy top and bobble hat.
The ‘Where’s Wally?’ hunt was organised by St Mary’s Catholic Primary School PTFA in conjunction with Archway Bookshop and raised over £300 towards an activity trail for the children.
Spokeswoman Jo Hawkins said: “The day was great! Families loved doing something different around the town and enjoyed the fact that it was something that could involve all ages.
