CARE home workers have been helping Chester-le-Street supermarket shoppers to raise funds for charity.
Pelton Grange Care Home collected almost £200 in donations from generous shoppers after helping to pack their bags at the town’s Tesco store.
The money adds to the £55 raised at the home’s coffee morning for the Stroke Association in May – taking the home’s total to £251 for the charity so far this year.
Chris Hogan-Hind, home manager at Pelton Grange Care Home, on Front Street, Pelton, was one of those on the Tesco checkouts.
He said: “The Stroke Association is the chosen charity of Hill Care, which owns Pelton Grange Care Home, so we’re doing everything we can to raise as much money as possible for them this year.
“It’s a charity close to the hearts of everyone at the home, as they support survivors and their families to rebuild their lives.
“Shoppers expressed their admiration that we’re supporting the Stroke Association this year and that we gave up our time to raise funds for the charity by helping them with their packing.
“We’d like to thank Chester-le-Street Tesco for their support and shoppers for their generous donations and kind words.”
