Business searches for charity partner

A MORPETH business has posted a vacancy for a new charity partner, but organisations will have to act quickly if they wish to be considered.

The Original Factory Shop in the Market Place plans to find a worthy cause to support throughout 2012.

And it is seeking nominations to fill the position from January 1.

A programme of fund-raising activities will take place at the store and staff hope to collect at least £500 during the year.

But nomination forms, which are available from the shop, must be submitted by Monday.

Store Manager Kim Duncan said: “The Original Factory Shop works hard at being part of local life and is always looking at ways it can put something back into the community.

“We’ve decided to support just one local cause in 2012 so that we can really make a big difference to them.

“We’re asking for nominations from anyone in Morpeth who needs a helping hand, whether it’s a mothers and toddlers’ group, a local children’s football team or a support group of whatever kind.”
