Supermarket workers have been busy fundraising for a cause close to their hearts, donating more than £1,300.

Colleagues from the Sainsbury’s store in Newsteads Drive in Whitley Bay, and family members of David Hodgson handed over a cheque for £1,374 to the blood cancer charity Bright Red.

The money was raised at a charity night and a memorial service held in memory of colleague Janet Clark’s partner David Hodgson.
