THE Jam Jar Army continues to march in north Northumberland as dedicated recruits show their commitment to the cause.

Residents of the Heatherdale care home in Broomhill have now filled an impressive 11 jars after getting involved in the campaign early in July.

Staff were also keen to get involved as some had who have been affected by cancer.

We aim to raise £10,000 for HospiceCare North Northumberland to support the invaluable work they do across the region.

We still have plenty of good-sized glass jars, posters and stickers to take away and use so there is no excuse not to get involved.

Get in touch with the Gazette let us know what your business or organisation has been doing.

Full jars can be dropped off at our office as well as the Lions bookshop on Bondgate Within and the HospiceCare North Northumberland centres in Alnwick and Berwick.
