Boys ready to get packing

A GROUP of Morpeth youngsters are being told to pack their bags this weekend to raise funds for the Boys’ Brigade.

The group of enthusiastic Anchor and Junior boys, aged from five to 11, from the Christian-based 1st Morpeth Boys’ Brigade will be at the Morrisons check-outs to help pack customers’ bags.

They are hoping to raise as much money as possible to pay towards the cost of maintenance work on the old meeting hall in Manchester Street.

Saturday’s bag packing comes on the eve of an open night (March 10) for local schoolchildren and their parents.
