Rotary members have had more than a grand time raising funds for charity.

The Rotary Club of Tynemouth has handed over £1,200 to the Marie Curie hospice in Newcastle.

The funds were raised at a club member’s garden party and a collection at Morrisons supermarket in Whitley Bay, rounded up by a Rotary grant.

Marie Curie fundraiser Hayley Revell attended the club’s meeting to collect the cheque.

And she told members all about the hospice.

She said that it costs £6,584 a day to maintain the facility, with all of its funding coming from public donations.
