AN EMBROIDERY service based in Sanquhar has raised more than £200 for the Poppy Appeal.

Nith Valley embroidery, situated on the village’s High Street, has taken in a fantastic £270 for the appeal through sales of beanie hats, scarves and face masks.

And the shop’s charitable pursuits do not stop there as staff have also raised £425 for Children in Need.

The picture to the right shows employee, Heather, handing over a cheque to Billy and Ian “who do a great job for the charity.”

A spokesperson said: “We do it ever year.”

The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign which is held annually during the period of Remembrance.
