If you walk down Bridge Street, or go into Morrisons you will almost certainly know of Margaret. She often stands outside the British Heart Foundation Charity shop with a collecting bucket – often for hours on end. She also helps pack bags at Morrisons and elsewhere. She has been doing this for at least 12 years. She lives with her parents in Merley Gate and is in her early 30’s. She walks down to Morpeth with her parents almost every day, only using the bus in the worst of weathers. She is pleasant, friendly and always happy to chat to people – a very helpful and dedicated young woman.
