STAFF from an Alnwick insurance office have climbed Northumberland’s biggest mountain to raise money for charity.

Six workers at NFU Mutual, on Bondgate Without, donned walking boots and waterproofs to tackle 2,674ft-hight Cheviot in aid of HospiceCare North Northumberland.

NFU agent and group secretary Tania Conway said: “It’s great to be able to do something like this for a local charity. NFU Mutual has had an office in Alnwick for a long time, so the town and community are very important to us, it’s something we’ll definitely be doing more of in the future.”

Sponsorship for the team is still being accepted. Money or cheques can be dropped off at the NFU or HospiceCare offices or sent to them at NFU 25 Bondgate Without, Alnwick, NE66 1PR, or HospiceCare 40 Narrowgate, Alnwick, NE66 1JQ.
