Grafting for cash

A SMALL regional children’s charity has been given a boost after a year-long fund-raising drive by Newcastle Building Society.

Staff at the society’s branches and head office have organised various events, such as cake bakes, dress down days, a sponsored walk and a prize draw, to collect £8,427 for The Grafter’s Club.

The charity is based at the RVI in Newcastle, supporting children who have experienced a burn injury and their families.
