Mercury readers raised £730 for Stamford paratrooper Luke

Have your say

THANK you! Mercury readers have again proved their generosity by raising £730 to buy an iPad 2 for wounded paratrooper Luke Morrison.

We launched an appeal last week to buy an iPad 2 with wi-fi and 3G to help Luke.

Since then our offices have been inundated with cheques and cash. One young boy donated his £1 pocket money and elderly people have given money from their pensions.

Regulars at the Blue Bell in Easton-on-the-Hill collected £100.

Luke’s dad Douglas said: “It is heartwarming for people to do it. He will be chuffed to bits.

“The response has really been touching. We’re so grateful to the Mercury and its readers.”
