Cafe’s magic show to raise funds for school

A WHITLEY Bay coffee shop is hoping that a touch of magic will raise money for local school children.

A magic show will be held at Runamokka on Thursday, April 4, from 2pm.

There will also be a face painter and balloon modelling.

All the money raised will go to Grosvenor Community Pre-School in Whitley Bay who are looking to obtain a pirate ship for their outdoor play area.

Tickets cost £3 and are available from Runamokka at 221 Whitley Road or by visiting the shop’s Facebook page or

Admission is free for adults, however.
