NORTH Somerset shoppers touched by the devastation suffered by the Caribbean nation of Haiti have donated money to a funding drive.

From Saturday to Monday alone, more than £1,000 was collected for the Haiti Earthquake Appeal at the Asda store in Phillips Road, Weston.

The appeal was set up after an earthquake, which is thought to have reached 7.0 on the Richter scale, struck the country last week.

"I cannot thank people enough with all the donations they have given.
