Staff from EE's North Tyneside call centre recently braved the sea at Newbiggin and raised an amazing £500 for NDAS. They have also delivered 20 shoe boxes filled with goodies for Christmas for men, women, teenagers and children. We really appreciate their kindness and generosity. Many people struggle this time of year a donation of this kind could make someone's Christmas. Thank you
