Organisation very grateful for help

SSAFA North Tyneside division would like to thank all the people who turned up for the tombola and information stand on Tynemouth Market on Saturday, August 23.

With the generous support of the people of the borough and visitors to the area we raised £239 that will be used in our work in the borough supporting current serving and veterans of all the armed forces and their families at a time of need.

Our next major funding raising event, in conjunction with the Army Benevolent Fund and Tynemouth World War 1 Commemoration Project, is The Response, a concert to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The venue is the Sage Gateshead, at 7.30pm on Saturday, September 27. Tickets from the Sage Box office.
