The Mayor of Alnwick, Coun Alan Symmonds, enjoyed a cuppa at the League of Friends of the Alnwick Hospital 60th anniversary coffee morning in the town’s Northumberland Hall on Saturday.
The event raised the grand total of £1,240. The Friends want to say thanks to everyone who helped, in particular the women of Alnwick Inner Wheel, staff from Alnwick Infirmary and George Stokoe.
The money raised will be used to support the infirmary when the Friends receive requests for the purchase of equipment.
To mark the Friends’ anniversary, the group’s president, the Duchess of Northumberland, presented an ECG machine to be used in the outpatients department.
