A NEW Morpeth charity shop has opened in aid of Arthritis Research UK.
The ribbon was cut at the Bridge Street store by Morpeth Mayor Joan Tebbutt on Saturday, who is well aware of the debilitating condition after being diagnosed with arthritis of the spine.
She thanked specialist researchers and clinicians, and spoke with staff, volunteers and customers.
The new shop will also serve as a hub for a new Arthritis Research UK Morpeth supporter group. Donations would be welcome.
