A TEENAGER from Whitchurch has raised more than £800 for charity by making and selling custom postcards.

Ben Churton, 14, is helping raise the money for Severn Hospice, who provided care for his Grandma before she passed away in February.

A website has been set up by Ben to sell the postcards, with all of the profits from every sale going to the charity.

Whitchurch Herald:

Ben says he undertook the fundraiser as a way of giving back to the charity that helped his family.

"I'm raising money for Severn Hospice by designing, printing and selling postcards," said Ben. "I am doing this in memory of my Grandma, Mary, who passed away in February.

"Severn Hospice provided care for her and were so caring and kind towards me and my family and they allowed us to spend quality time with her, and I felt like I wanted to give something back to them for all they have done for us.

Whitchurch Herald:

"Of every pack sold, 100 per cent is donated to Severn Hospice and they are for sale on my website bchurton.co.uk

"I raised £500 by selling postcards and have raised a further £330 in the last two weeks selling Christmas postcards."
