Businesses in North Tyneside are supporting families and victims caught up in the attack in Manchester.
Collection boxes have been set up in some stores while others are planning fund-raising events.
Caffé Barista, in the Beacon Centre, North Shields, has set up a collection bucket inside its premises, which raised nearly £100 in a matter of hours, and will hold an event on Saturday.
There will be face painting all day, a magician from 11am to noon and a singer performing from noon to 4.30pm.
Owner Suzi Boucher is also looking to hold a raffle and appealing for any local businesses able to offer a prize to get in touch.
She said: “I just wanted to help. People in North Shields are really generous.”
Gingers Wigwam, in Marden Road, Whitley Bay, has also set up a collection bucket.
It is also making a donation for every toot of a car’s horn it hears and asking for a donation from those keen to get a selfie with life-size Avengers figures outside the shop.
A total of 22 people were killed and 59 injured by a suicide bomber outside Manchester Arena on Monday evening, just minutes after an Ariana Grande concert had finished.
