A cheque of £7,700 has been presented to HospiceCare North Northumberland.

The donation comes from the Newcastle division of Advantech Innocore.

The idea to support the hospice, which has day-therapy centres in Alnwick and Berwick, came from Edward Price, managing director of the Global Gaming and EU displays division of Advantech, based at Silverlink Business Park. HospiceCare supported his mother through her cancer battle.

The money will support the delivery of 308 hours of Hospice at Home services.
