Kathy Secker was a popular TV and radio presenter for many years, and we have found a special festive advert that she recorded for the Co-Op, in Whickham.

Secker, best known for her work as a continuity announcer on Tyne Tees, before hosting a popular request programme on the BBC until 2015.

Sadly, Kathy passed aged 70, in 2015, but her legacy lives on with her work in founding Grace House North East. The House provides short break care services for children who have life limiting conditions and disabilities.

In the retro advert, Kathy shows off some of the best bargains at that time, from joints of meat for Christmas, After Eights and more.
