A CLEVER caterer used his loaf when he made a meal of supporting the Mayor of South Tyneside’s charity bid.

Michael Kane, owner of The Village Sandwich Bar in William Street, Hebburn, has been collecting cash for the annual Mayor’s Charity Appeal with a donation tin on the counter.

The Mayor, Coun Ernest Gibson, dropped in to tuck into a special sandwich made in his honour.

Mr Kane has created ‘The Mayor’s Christmas Sandwich’, which is being served up to hungry customers until early January.

It consists of turkey, stuffing, chipolata, cranberry, apple sauce and gravy.

The sandwich bar has been in Hebburn for over two years, during which time it has branched out into outside catering.

Mr Kane said: “We thought it would be fitting to name our festive sandwich after the Mayor.

“He’s done a great deal for the local community, and I thought it would be a fun way to end the year.

“We have supported the Mayor and Mayoress with their charity work by having a collection tin on our counter, where our customers have been very generous with their loose change.”

Coun Gibson said: “I’ve led a full and interesting life, but no-one has ever named a sandwich after me before.

“This is a real first.”

He added: “Michael and his team have been great this year with all their help with the Mayor’s Charity, and the sandwich is champion!”

The Mayor’s Charity is, this year, supporting Cancer Connections, St Clare’s Hospice, Great North Air Ambulance and Cystic Fibrosis Fund.
