Generous pensioners have helped boost the coffers of two charities which help people in South Tyneside.

Members of The Friendly Circle – some of whom are in their 90s – put their fundraising skills to good use in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

In less than 10 months, the group, which is based at the Baptist Tabernacle, in Marsden Road, South Shields, raised £2,000 which has now been split between the two charities.
