Villagers are pulling together to raise £500 for their “friendly and dependable” postie to give him a Christmas to remember for years to come.
Residents in Landbeach have set up a GoFundMe page for their postman, Karl, in a bid to “show him he is very much valued in our community”.
Tosha Vallis, who set up the fundraiser, has already been sharing the collection on social media and has raised £215 in just one day.
They said: “The Landbeach community would like to extend our sincere thank you to our long-term postman Karl who has not stopped delivering our letters and parcels throughout two lockdowns.
“Karl is not only friendly and dependable but he goes above and beyond what is required of the job from returning missing items he’s found to finding missing deliveries.
