Brilliant bazaar

A GRAND total of almost £10,000 was raised in a Morpeth community sale.

The week-long Bargain Bazaar is run by the Morpeth Boys Brigade and 6th Morpeth Scout Group as their annual fund-raising event.

This year’s sale took place at the Boys Brigade Hall in Manchester Street last week.

Scout Group Chairman David Hill said: “On behalf of both organisations I would like to thank everybody who donated items, all the people who came and helped through the week and the people who came and supported it.

“It finished on Saturday and we raised £9,900, which is fantastic.”
