A spokesman for thee Park View shop, said: “We’re asking everyone in Whitley Bay to take on the Big Bag Challenge, and it really couldn’t be easier – just drop a bag of unwanted items in.

“Only with your support can we continue our work to raise vital funds to support lonely older people, both in the local area and across the UK, and give everyone a chance to love later life. Any bag will do, and every bag you fill really does count.”
