Shoppers show they have a heart

THERE was a good response from customers to a Morpeth charity shop’s Christmas fund-raising hamper draw.

A total of 900 tickets were bought at a cost of £1 at the town’s British Heart Foundation branch in Bridge Street .

Mayor Phil Taylor picked out the winner — Mrs V Usher.

The money will go towards research into heart disease, prevention activities and quality care and support for sufferers.
