Staff at a Northumberland care home have been helping out all creatures great and small this festive season.

Pamela Parry, who works at Northlea Court Care Home in Cramlington, approached staff with the idea of collecting some items for Benton Cat and Dog shelter to help them over the Christmas period and beyond.

And what started as a few items of food quickly built up into a great collection of toys, blankets and other items that will enable the shelter to provide a few extras to the animals in their care over the winter months.

Pam delivered all the items, along with five bags of dog food, which were donated by a local friendship group, to the shelter in North Tyneside on Thursday.
