Shields Ferry Skipper Bob Paterson has collected a £450 donation for the Help for Heroes charity from the ASDA Foundation.
Bob, who has now raised more than £3,500 for Help for Heroes, secured the donation from ASDA after they provided all the catering for his fundraising coffee morning on board Spirit of the Tyne last month.
Bob said: “I am extremely grateful for all the support I have had from ASDA. Their foundation has provided this donation of £450, which is fantastic.
“I am already planning further events to raise more for Help for Heroes as it’s a cause that is very close to my heart.”
