Supermarket staff booked into a Northumberland community centre to show their support for children’s literacy.

Sainsbury’s Cramlington colleagues Michelle Rootham and Kevin Kelly called into the Briardale Community Centre in Blyth to deliver a huge donation of books.

The centre supports people from across the community, providing youth groups, breakfast clubs and a nursery.

It also caters for children referred from various services throughout the county.

The donation supports Sainsbury’s children’s literacy initiative in Blyth.

Michelle said: “These books will be a massive help.

“Jean Bell, who manages the centre, was absolutely over the moon with them.”
