Former Royal Marine Phil Lloyd-Evans and his dog Lottie have been selling reflective poppies for Remembrance Day.

The owner of the Wharfside Café, in Uphill, has kitted his dog out with a tunic covered in poppies which he then sells on behalf of the Poppy Appeal.

Phil said: “We were out on holiday when we discovered them and we just had to get one for Lottie.

“They were initially designed to go on children’s backpacks but they work great for dogs too.

“We will walk down Weston High Street and people would stop us to buy one. I will cover her tunic in them, go out and sell them and then put the money in our Poppy Appeal collection pot.”

The ex-marine told the Mercury he wanted to do ‘everything he could’ to raise money for servicemen in need.
