IT’S fund-raising thyme at Morpeth’s Sanderson Arcade.

The shopping centre has been growing a variety of herbs in its flower beds as part of Morpeth In Bloom’s focus on edible plants.

And now customers are being invited to buy a bunch in aid of the Sick Children’s Trust.

Coriander, thyme, parsley, rosemary, mint and fennel are all available from the arcade flower stall or Beadles for £1.50 a bunch.

All proceeds will go to the trust, which offers free home-from-home accommodation for families of poorly youngsters in Newcastle. The arcade hopes to raise £10,000 to fund a new playroom.
