The Duck Inn in Stanhoe made the decision to close its doors to ensure the health of its staff and customers.

The pub, owned by Ben and Sarah Handley, had thousands of pounds worth of stock left over from Mothering Sunday.

Mr Handley said: “We all have a responsibility for each other, and more so at this time. Anything we can do to help we will, and this is a small gesture which hopefully will mean the world to those people suffering the most.

“I truly believe that we all have a responsibility to each other and times like these will hopefully make us nicer people and we can all help each other more.”
