Generous Tynemouth Co-op colleagues and customers raised more than £450 for the Together Forever Trust.

The trust is a charity set-up by the families of Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry, two teenagers from South Shields who died in the Manchester Arena bombing last May.

Funds were raised from a tombola and raffle, sponsored head shaves and a bucket collection by a willing member of the Co-op team who dressed up as a Minion character.

The day formed part of a wider plan involving 20 Co-ops across Tyne and Wear that are aiming to collectively raise £20,000 by the end of the year.

The charity aims to help ensure that talented children are given the opportunity to reach their full potential in performing arts and sports.
