A MORPETH department store has made a donation to a charity which helps soldiers who have been wounded in conflict following a big fund-raising drive.

The family-owned Rutherfords of Morpeth invited Help For Heroes to set up a trade stand selling merchandise earlier this year and also placed collection tins and buckets in the store.

Lance Corporal Darren Longstaff recently came along to formally accept a cheque for £1,100 on behalf of the charity.
