A toddler group is making giant strides in community work, with the help of local store staff.

The Guide Post Wesleyan Reform Church Toddler Group has recently celebrated its first anniversary after being set up by Pastor Michael and Lindsey Hedley.

The service, which caters for children up to three years old, is proving popular with parents, with play time, refreshments and singing on offer, and donated toys.

Now the Choppington Co-operative Food Store has added its support with a range of fundraising schemes.

There was a cake and tombola stall, collection buckets in store during the six-week school summer holiday and staff completed a 12-mile sponsored walk, raising a total of £635 for new equipment.

The group meets every Tuesday, from 10.30am to noon. Call 07854 820012 for details.
