The Rotary Club of Alnwick has handed over a cheque for £500 to HospiceCare North Northumberland, which is part of the income from a race night.

Thanks to the various sponsors who paid for races and horses, almost £1,500 was raised for local good causes.

The club is hoping to run another race night on October 25.
