All profits will go to Delaval Parish, which includes St Michael’s New Hartley and The Church of our Lady in Seaton Delaval, as well as St Paul’s.

A 3ft square quilted painting of Old Seaton Sluice with Tall Ships was crafted by Barbara Burgess, using silk material and Kaffe Fasset fabrics, which will be displayed in The Tower in Seaton Sluice as part of the Tall Ships Regatta. To bid for it call 0191 237 5163 by tomorrow (Friday).
