A new yarnbombing initiative in Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton has seen more than £5k raised for end-of-life charity Hospiscare.

'The Mail Trail' saw as many as 24 postboxes around Exmouth feature a knitted or crocheted topper made by local volunteers for the very first time.

The fundraiser ran from 1-31 October, and has now raised a total of £5,029.90.

A long list of local businesses sponsored their efforts with donations.
