An appeal to raise funds for a lasting memorial to lost fishermen has received support from a supermarket.
North Shields Fisherman’s Heritage Project (NSFHP) is looking to raise £75,000 for a sculpture to be placed at North Shields Fish Quay.
And it has received £2,374 from the Co-op through its Community Fund.
The organisation was nominated by the North Shields store.
Terry McDermott, chairman of NSFHP (pictured left, with Co-op manager Gary Conway), said: “We are delighted to have received such amazing support from the North Shields Co-op and their customers.
“The Co-op slogan of ‘Great things happen when we work together’ is certainly true in this case!
“Thank you all so much.”
