Fund-raising Co-op workers handed a cheque for £250 to HospiceCare North Northumberland after it had cared for the dad of two members of staff.

The store in Bondgate Within, Alnwick, held a tombola and raffles and went around the street giving away bananas to the public with a man in a gorilla costume.

Although the staff members’ father, who had cancer, sadly passed away, the hospice was a great support to the family.
