Mother Hookers have been making and selling the badges to raise funds.

A spokesman said: “We have totalled up our donations through brooch sales for March and have raised an amazing £2.708. With Gift Aid and government matching to the first £1,100 we sent, it is a grand total of £4,083.93 for the month.

“A huge thank you to everyone who has helped us by either donating yarn, making or selling the brooches and those who have bought them too.
