THE coffers of a charity that supports people with learning difficulties and disabilities will be boosted by almost £1,000 after a fundraising event at a supermarket.

The Learning Library, based in Spennymoor, held an Easter themed tombola at Asda, in Bishop Auckland, on Wednesday, April 16.

The event raised £483.34 which will be used to buy toys and specialist items for use by the library's members. The sum will be match funded by Barclays bank.
