A STAGE star dropped by a new charity shop in Sunderland for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Former Bucks Fizz singer Cheryl Baker was at the Sunderland and North Durham Royal Society for the Blind’s new store in Waterloo Place in the city centre.

Baker took time out of her schedule playing Mrs Cunningham in the stage version of Happy Days, which was showing at the Sunderland Empire last week, to open the shop.

The Sunderland and North Durham branch of the RSB was formed in 1877 and is one of the oldest in the United Kingdom working on behalf of blind and visually impaired people.

The charity provides a range of services to help and support visually impaired people to try and help them have an independent life.
