Metro auction charity boost.
Nexus handed over a record-breaking pounds 1,800, raised from this year's auction of lost property. The auction, held at Whitley Bay Metro station in July, saw hundreds of items of lost property go under the hammer in a fivehour sales marathon. All the proceeds - a total of pounds 1,856 - will be donated to the chosen charities of the chairman of North Tyneside Council, Coun Michael Huscroft.
These include Brainwave, The Chris Lucas Trust and the Mick Knighton Mesothelioma Research Fund.
Nexus Communications director, Andy Bairstow, said: "This year's Metro lost property auction was a huge success and we are delighted to be able to hand over a record-breaking sum of money to charity."
Some of the items up for grabs included a set of alloy wheels, a Sky TV digital receiver, cameras, roller blades, jewellery, mobile phones, DVDs, iPods and music players.
