A SCHOOL and a café have made sure that the Jam Jar Army continues its onward march.

Two weeks ago, we reported how our campaign to raise £10,000 for HospiceCare North Northumberland had made it to the halfway point, with the total standing at around £5,500.

But Rock Hall School took onboard the fact that we still have our work cut out if we want to hit that ambitious target.

The pupils, who have been busy collecting ever since the summer holidays, raised a massive £180 for the Army.

Another who has helped boost the total was Rosemary’s cafe in Seahouses, who had jam jars on all the tables during the busy summer season.

They added an amazing £219 to the cause, which will go to help people with life-limiting illnesses in north Northumberland.

We would ask other café owners to follow their lead and put jars on their tables over half-term and help boost that total further.

Contact the Gazette if you want to get involved or let us know what you have been doing for the Jam Jar Army.
