”In addition to our support of local produce and products, is our support of local charities that serve Northumberland. Whilst we do change these charities from time to time, we aim to build a working relationship with each organisation and to work with them in raising much needed monies.
The team here kindly offer a large part of any tips that have been generously given, in addition to holding coffee mornings, talks, musical events and other such fund raising ideas.
Each charity offers a vital service to the community, which is so very much appreciated.”

SHAK was formed in June 2006 by Stephen Wylie after the sudden death of his beloved German Shepherd cross Shak from lymphoma.
Shak was an amazing friend who got me through some very difficult times in my life.He came to me when I needed him most, but also when he needed me. We learned how to cope with the big wild world together, we helped each other through each of our own individual problems. The love we had for each other always got us through.
The Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) brings pioneering pre-hospital care to the scene, rescuing hundreds of severely injured or ill patients every year.
We provide air ambulance services across the North-East, Cumbria and North Yorkshire. We are entirely funded by charity.
Everything we do is focused around delivering world-class care in that moment for our patients. But the impact is felt far beyond this group of people. Consider their families, their friends and colleagues, and then there’s those we train, our healthcare partners and the communities involved in fundraising activity.
