What a great town we live in!

Welshpool, you are wonderful!

Time and time again we have covered stories showing how community spirit shines through in the end and you have done it again to support a family in their hour of need.

Last week, the Hocking family (pictured) were left homeless by a devastating fire at their Oldford home during Storm Doris (below right).

But within hours of the Thursday night horror, a fundraising page was launched which has raised more than three times the £1,000 that was originally targeted.

By this morning, a whopping £3,295 has been raised with family, friends, neighbours and even strangers uniting in a tremendous show of strength and charity.

As well as the cash raised to date, residents have also been offering up just about anything from furniture and clothes to even a Dyson hoover to help them get back on their feet.

It’s these sorts of moments that make us all proud to be from this wonderful town.

If you want to help, you can still donate to https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ceri-gannon?utm_id=108&utm_term=k4xE2dNXd
