A north Northumberland cancer support charity has been handed a bumper funding boost.

HospiceCare North Northumberland has received almost £3,500 courtesy of Rotary.

Alnwick Rotary Club’s outgoing president Jill Clark, who chose the charity as her cause for the year, presented a cheque for £1,630.23 to hospice manager Sue Gilbertson and marketing co-ordinator Julie Frost at a recent volunteering event in Northumberland Hall.

The hospice has also received an £800 Rotary district grant, and a cheque for £1,000 from the club’s charity golf day, making a grand total of £3,400.23.
