Historians, Deryn Poppitt and Graham Greasley, published the book, Chirk 1939-1945, which was an instant success with readers.

The pair said that with profits being donated to charity, they managed to raise more than £1,000.

They recently donated £500 each to the Chirk Royal British Legion and Chirk Circle of Friends.

They also donated cheques of smaller amounts to Chirk's junior football team, the playgroup and the church.
