THE GUIDE Dogs for the Blind are almost £200 better off thanks to the Skegness Community Church of the Nazarene.

The local church presented a cheque for £180 to the cause recently thanks to the success of its Meeting Point Charity Shop.

It brings the total donated by the church since April to £800.

The Meeting Point Charity Shop operates in the County Hotel on North Parade, Skegness.

The Church has been meeting every Sunday in the County Hotel for the past two and a half years and last April opened the Charity Shop as a way of reaching the community during the week.

After a short break for Christmas and New Year, the Meeting Point Charity Shop has reopened and is presently operating two mornings a week, 10am to 1pm, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

It offers the opportunity to relax over a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit for just 50p.
