A church service took an unusual turn as members held a Scones of Praise.

The event took place at St Andrew’s URC in Monkseaton as part of celebrations and support for the 60th anniversary of Christian Aid Week.

Activities were organised with St Peter’s Church, while scones were donated by Sainsbury’s Monkseaton. Manager Roger Thompson has supported such events during his time at the shop and is wished well as he moves on to a Sunderland store.
