A veteran has raised £5,000 for a new war memorial in just a few months.
Bill Carline, aged 92, who served in World War Two, wants a memorial to mark the sacrifices made by 19 soldiers from Frecheville.
He has since been inundated with donations.
The great-grandfather of 10 said: “I never expected this kind of response.”
It is hoped the memorial will be in place by next May, the conflict’s 70th anniversary.
