Northumberland Wildlife Trust (NWT) has thanked all of the Waitrose intu Eldon Square shoppers who raised £424 via the company’s Community Matters Scheme earlier this year.

Helen Twelves, NWT’s director of finance and central services, said: “This is the third time Waitrose Newcastle and its shoppers have supported us, having previously raised funds in 2011 and 2012.

“The money donated will be spent on our conservation work in the region.”
