TWO works by renowned technical illustrator John Batchelor have raised £480 for Wimborne British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

John, who was inspired by the Spitfire MK805 which took pride of place in Wimborne Square over last year’s Remembrance weekend produced two detailed pencil drawings to be auctioned to raise funds for the Legion.

The drawings, which were on display in Wimborne’s TIC were framed courtesy of Wimborne BID.

The lucky bidders who now own John’s illustrations are Graham Mallett and Vince Postill.
