THE super fundraising ladies at the Little Green Charity Shop are it again - this time handing over £2,000 to a town primary school.
The incredibly dedicated and kind-hearted volunteers at the charity shop in Murray Street are no strangers to appearing in the Mail and that’s because of their constant support to worthy causes across the town.
Earlier this month the volunteers who give up their time to work in the shop at least two days every week handed over £2,000 to Cleveland Fire Brigade.
And since then they have already raised enough to hand over another £2,000 to the hugely grateful staff and pupils at Springwell Primary School.
The school, in Wiltshire Way, has received thousands of pounds in the past from the ladies at the charity shop which has gone towards funding a new minibus, equipment in school and paying for trips out for the children.
And their coffers have been boosted yet again after another donation earlier this week.
Sylvia Johnson, who has volunteered at the charity shop for a staggering 44 years, suggested supporting the school because her sister, Kelly Readman, works there so she was aware of the good work and a number of ongoing projects at Springwell, which specialises in children with learning difficulties and disabilities.
Sylvia, who lives in the Stockton Road area of Hartlepool, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Springwell School again.
“The children visited the charity shop and it was lovely to show them round.
“The staff and the children there are always so grateful, hopefully we will raise even more for them in the future.”
Sylvia said the ladies who volunteer at the shop will now discuss what charity they plan to donate to next.
The charity shop is always on the lookout for donations of clothes, bric-a-brac, CDs and DVDs.
The shop is open Monday-Saturday.
