A youngster has benefitted from the generosity of a car club.

MG Northumbria raised more than £12,000 at its Classics in Corbridge car show last year.

They have spent the past 12 months donating the more to local causes, and the latest recipient was Nathan Hewitt.

The three-year-old, who lives in Backworth, suffers from Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy affecting all four limbs meaning he is unable to stand or walk.

But the money awarded to his grandmother Susan on his behalf will be used to purchase a tandem harness to assist his mobility and help him walk.

They were presented with their cheque by group chairman Tim Cook, joined by other MG Northumbria members at Backworth Hall.

MG Northumbria, which is based in Backworth as well, is holding this year’s Classics in Corbridge show on July 5.

Money raised will again be split between local charities and voluntary organisations.
