Collection route change

A CHARITY collection point in Morpeth has temporarily changed because of the town’s one-way system.

The Blythswood Care van usually stops in Morrisons’ car park so people can hand over items.

But on Thursday, March 8, it will be located at the big layby near the turn off for Lancaster Park.

Residents can donate a range of items, such as furniture, bedding, clothing and footwear, food tins and packets, toys, CDs and mobile phones in a 20-minute period from about 10.45am.

The Christian charity provides practical help for those in need at home and abroad, regardless of their political or religious beliefs or ethnic origins.
