Archers fan 'accidentally' raises £19,000 for domestic abuse charity
BBC News Online
An Archers fan has "accidentally" raised more than £19,000 after setting up a donation page under the name of one of the radio soap's characters.
Paul Trueman, 41, from Georgeham, Devon, was inspired by character Helen Titchener who is suffering abuse at the hands of her husband, Rob.
The The Helen Titchener (nee Archer) Rescue Fund has raised more than £19,000.
The seat of Devon North has been a Conservative-Liberal marginal since its creation in 1950. Jeremy Thorpe held it from 1959, but he lost heavily to the Conservatives in 1979 when his life was engulfed in scandal and he faced trial on conspiracy and incitement to murder charges, of which he was later cleared.
The constituency has a thriving tourist industry in Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Braunton, but towns such as Barnstaple and South Molton are dependent on light manufacturing and the retail sector. Almost a tenth of the population works in accommodation and food services - the 23rd highest proportion of all seats in England and Wales, according to ONS 2011 Census figures. Work in agriculture, forestry and fishing is important and many people have skilled trades.
In 2010, Nick Harvey held the seat for the Liberal Democrats with 47.4% of the votes; Conservatives got 36%, UKIP 7.2% and Labour 5.2%.
