Generous building society customers have a can-do attitude when it comes to charity support.

Members of the Leeds Building Society have been collecting tins of food for north east homeless charity The People’s Kitchen at branches across the region.

In Blyth 124 cans were provided, with 164 given in Morpeth. The total collected came to 380.

Morpeth customer service advisor Verena Harrigan, who organised the donation, said: “The People’s Kitchen helps so many people in Newcastle to have a warm meal at least once in the day. We have had collections for the charity in the past, but the need for the food supply never goes away.

“A collection of foodstuffs at Christmas time seemed a really nice thing for the North East branches to do.”

The charity has been helping homeless and disadvantaged people since 1985.
