A fundraising day at Middleton Grange shopping centre in Hartlepool raised more than £500 for a local good cause.

Hartlepool RNLI Enterprise Branch raised £560 for the charity that saves lives at sea.

A delighted enterprise branch chairperson, Beryl Sherry, said: “Once again a brilliant effort from our members and very generous support from the shoppers at Middleton Grange shopping centre raised a substantial amount for the Hartlepool RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew.

“The support from the shopping centre manager Mark Rycraft and his staff to help set our stall up was really helpful.”
