Since the 5p charge for carrier bags was introduced, Ayton Mini Market manager Darren Hall has been saving the money handed over to donate to Ayton Primary School.

With £170 saved up, Darren gave the money to the school and the pupils decided to spend it on some of their favourite books to stock up the library. Darren is pictured above with some of the primary school pupils and the 50 books they bought.
