A fund-raising ceilidh is being held at the end of the month to support the work of a hospital in Africa.

Richie Biggers, from Alnwick, is doing his medical elective at Trinity Hospital in Muona, Malawi, this spring.

It is in a very poor rural area of south Malawi and life is an endless struggle for supplies and decisions on who they need to prioritise for treatment.

To raise funds for the hospital, a ceilidh has been organised and will take place at the Northumberland Hall, in Alnwick, on Friday, March 31, from 7.30pm until late.

The band Heads on the Block, from Berwick, will be leading the entertainment, while Jim Smith will be the caller on the night.

There will be interval refreshments and a pay bar.

Tickets are priced at £10 each and are available by calling Peter and Karina on 07786 960484.
