Shaftesbury in Bloom has exceeded its £1,000 fundraising target on the final day of its 42-day online crowdfunding appeal.
Member Derek Beer tells Alfred that some residents have handed him additional cash donations, too. Now, extra cash from Shaftesbury Town Council and the community will be given to the volunteers to fund their town centre floral displays.
The Open House benefits advice and support service at Fathers House will also receive an unexpected cash boost from the council.
