A Newton Aycliffe mum was treated to a beautiful hamper after a fundraising effort by new group Community Spirit.
Joanne Jones, of Community Spirit (pictured) made the Mother’s Day hamper and, with the co-operation of the Wilko store in Newton Aycliffe and volunteers who helped man the stall for two days, raffled it off for £355.
“We benefitted from the excellent footfall that the Wilko’s store enjoys,” said Joanne.
“The Wilko’s store staff were amazing, too – so helpful and friendly.”
The hamper was delivered to the winner, Mrs Doris Kelly, of Rowan Place, on Sunday morning.
The cash raised will go towards Community Spirit’s charity fund.
