Emmerdale actress Charlie Hardwick joined Pam and Ian in the studio with Margaret Musgrave - a Red Cross fundraiser for the North - to talk about the new Red Cross campaign to raise money to pay for hundreds more wheelchairs.
The Red Cross is an international symbol of charity and care, but the wheelchair campaign is just one of the initiatives that it runs at home.
The campaign is aiming to raise £45,000 to pay for 300 new wheelchairs across the North East and Cumbria.
