HUNDREDS of staff have helped a borough charity thanks to unwanted currency.

Employees at P&G’s three sites – Longbenton, Cobalt Park and Seaton Delaval – collected coins and bank notes from 15 countries which they donated to Barnardo’s for their work with disadvantaged youngsters in North Tyneside.

After counting up all the currency, which included some from China, Venezuela and Azerbaijan, they handed over £172 to the charity’s Whitley Bay branch.

Steve Oversby, Director at Barnardo’s North East, said: “We are delighted that P&G decided to make Barnardo’s North East the beneficiary of staff’s foreign currency and we are grateful that they chose us out of all the children’s charities.”
