A handbag donated by supermodel Kate Moss has raised £240 for a Shropshire care home at auction.

The purple crocodile-skin style handbag was given to Hendra House in Ludlow to sell. Ms Moss has mutual friend who has a relative in the home, it said.

Manager Vince Burmingham said Moss had previously given them fashion items and a portfolio of photographs to sell off.

The auction, which also included an Arsenal shirt signed by manager Arsene Wenger, raised £2,500, he said.

"The money is vital to our fundraising; it means we can take our residents on day trips which we try to do at least once a month," Mr Burmingham said.

The residential home has 28 residents, including three who are all aged 100 or older.
