Many thanks

While working as a driver for the WRVS Getabout Scheme, I was asked by a passenger if I could look at the damaged brakes on their wheeled walker.

In the circumstances, my intervention did not help, especially as I managed to lose a small screw.

I took the walker to Cyclelife at the Lionheart Enterprise Park, Alnwick, and they not only instantly replaced the missing part, but checked and adjusted both brakes as well.

And all free of charge!

The owner of the walker is delighted – and safe.

l I WOULD like to say a huge thank-you to all the fantastic people who supported Charlie Bear Cancer Appeal at a party at the Alnwick Gate on Saturday, February 25.

The Showaddydaddy’s, The Dritwood, the bar staff and especially Andy Welch, chairman, and Angie Taylor secretary for attending.

We raised the fantastic sum of £812.50.

l FOLLOWING our recent Fashion Show and Supper held at Paxton House for the charity Action Medical Research, may I take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended or helped in any way to making it a great success, raising a fantastic £2,800.

Particular thanks must go to Paxton House Trust and staff, Bella B for the clothes and models, Tree Locate for the floral decorations and EP Electricals for the use of lights.
