THREE charities are celebrating the news that they will share £300 between them.

Shoppers at the Asda store in Cramlington have been taking part in the Chosen By You token scheme, where they put a stoken in the box of the charity of their choice.

Dorothy Laing from the store said: “At the end of the two months the charity with the most tokens receives £200, and the other two receive £50, so all the charities benefit.”

Shanklea Primary School and Place2be accepted cheques for £50 and 2nd Cramlington Scouts took the big cheque, after receiving the most tokens from shoppers.
