Have a clear out to help care charity

COUNTY residents are being encouraged to support a good cause by having a spring clean over the next few days.

St Oswald’s Hospice is taking part in National Declutter Week, which runs until Sunday. It aims to promote the benefits of decluttering to people’s health and well-being, property values and local charity shops.

Items donated to its new Morpeth shop in Bridge Street will be sold to generate funds towards its specialist support for North East adults and children with life-limiting conditions.
