Barley Mow Primary School and Portobello Primary School recently collected food donations from their annual Harvest Festival. They generously donated the food to The Hub to be divided up between two local charities. Both The Salvation Army (Birtley branch) and The Gateshead Food Bank have now collected the donations and were very grateful for them. Thank you to all who donated. Ravensworth Terrace Primary, Birtley East and St. Josephs also gave their donations directly to very worthy causes. It's very heartening to see that Birtley has such a generous and caring community!
