A NEW convenience store has celebrated its launch with a donation to a local charity.
North Tyneside Disability Forum chief officer Sue Adams and her assistant Helen Dawson were guests of honour for the opening of the Tesco Express store on Cobalt Business Park.
They were joined by store manager Andy Mears and his team to cut the ribbon to officially open the store, before being presented with a cheque for £500 from Andy.
The Forum has worked with disabled people, their representatives and families in the borough for more than 25 years, providing a range of activities, events, services and resources.
Sue said: “I would like to thank Tesco for this generous donation.”
