Volunteers have been honoured for their work in the community.

Shiremoor House Farm treated volunteers from St Oswald’s Hospice to the North Shields pub to a complimentary three course lunch in recognition of their work for the hospice.

Sean Schofield, manager at the pub, said: “We wanted to give back to the community by celebrating all the hard work the volunteers do.

“They do a fantastic job every single day and are a vital part of the community and a crucial part of fund-raising efforts for St Oswald’s Hospice.”

Andrew Moir, head of retail at St Oswald’s, said: “We are so grateful to the team at Shiremoor House Farm for inviting our North Shields shop volunteers for a lunch to thank them for their hard work.”

“All of our volunteers work so hard give up their spare time to help run our shops, but the team at North Shields really went that extra mile with their fantastic raffle ticket sales.

“We are delighted that we are able to show them our appreciation and thanks.

“Our shops simply couldn’t run without the amazing work our volunteers do. Their commitment and dedication makes a real difference to local adults, young people, children and their families.”
