Three charities have received a cash boost thanks to generous shoppers at Asda in Blyth.

The store has handed out cheques in the latest round of the ‘Chosen by You’ Community Life Token scheme, where the charities who receive the most nominations from shoppers get a cash boost.

And the latest monthly winner of the initiative was the Sara’s Hope Foundation who received £100, with Blyth youngster Cory Davison on hand to receive the cheque alongside charity representative Alan Gray.

The other two charities to receive £25 for being runners up were PAWS and Bright Beginnings in Northumberland.

The store in Cowpen Road holds the scheme every month as a way of thanking local charities who do good in the community.
