Hundreds of pounds has been raised for charity thanks to the efforts of a men’s club.

Each year members of Cullercoats Men’s Club donate the contents of their ‘charity jar’ which has been collected over the previous 12 months.

And ahead of their meeting last week, officials handed over a cheque for £160 to Helen Farrow, of Pearey House (Tynemouth Blind Society), which was their nominated charity for 2013-14.

After the presentation, the club held its AGM and Gerry Daniel and John Bail shared their grandparents’ memories of the First World War.

John talked about his involvement with children at Rockcliffe First School who were doing a project.

He told them of a relative who won the Distinguished Service Medal for picking up a shell that had fallen off its rack and ignited the fuse, running out of the ammunition bunker and throwing it away.

The children have completed artwork which is on show at Tynemouth Metro Station.
