There was a grand time at the double for North Tyneside churches.

St Andrew’s and St Peter’s churches in Monkseaton have organised a number of events to raise funds for Christian Aid.

The finale was a Scones of Praise event at St Andrew’s United Reformed Church.

And as the new Co-op store in Earsdon Road was making its final preparations for opening at the time, its staff supplied cream, jam and other provisions.

A total of £2,000 has been raised.
