Charity says thank you.

A charity has thanked all the supporters of its Middlesbrough shop over the past decade.

The Catholic Handicapped Fellowship shop in Priory Place closed earlier this year following financial difficulties. Stephen Mulholland, chairman of the charity, said: "The shop had stopped making enough money really, for the amount of work that was put in. Shutting it was one of the hardest decisions we had to make. I just wanted to thank the volunteers and everyone who supported us over the last ten years." The fellowship's shop in Hemlington remains open.
