Kicking off 2021 by putting his best foot forward, Jarrow retailer Tahir Ali, who runs Scots Estate Premier Top Shop, has donated 3,000 pens to South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust Hospital.

After hearing that workers at the hospital were short on pens, Tahir immediately made his way to his local wholesaler. He said: “Pens are like gold dust. I know they have laptops and computers, but doctors and nurses still need pens – trust me.

“As soon as I found out that they were short on pens, I had to help them out because of the hard work that they are doing.”

When Tahir delivered the pens to the hospital earlier this month, workers were delighted with his gesture of good will.

He added: “Philip, who took them off me, couldn’t thank me enough.

“They were all so happy.”

No stranger to charity work, the Fed previously reported on Tahir’s good deeds throughout 2020, which included donations to key workers throughout the pandemic, free curry’s for families, Christmas gifts from Santa and Halloween treats for children within his community!
