Charity gifts for Christmas.
Instead the couple from Greenside, Gateshead, are getting a buzz from paying pounds 48 to buy a poor family in Albania a hive and a swarm of honey bees through the charity World Vision. Jenny, a student nurse, and Robert, a teacher, also sponsor a child through World Vision and recently adopted a chimpanzee on behalf of his year six pupils through the International Primate Protection League (IPPL).
The 33-year-olds also give regularly to a host of animal charities.
Because Jenny is a student and doesn't pay tax, all the donations are done through Robert so their chosen charities can take advantage of the Gift Aid scheme.
