Volunteer collectors with relatives who were awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest award for gallantry awarded to military personnel, collected more than £800 through their Poppy Day collection.

Margaret Ferguson, pictured front left,who was responsible for getting the special band of collectors together, said: “Everyone was so generous which helped us towards this wonderful total.”

Sarah Scott, Newmarket’s Poppy Appeal co-ordinator, added: “What Mrs Ferguson managed to do in bringing these families together was particularly poignant with this year being the centenary of the First World War.”
