A luxury Northumberland spa has been rolling out the red carpet to support the British Heart Foundation.

Therapists at Matfen Hall Hotel’s Aqua Vitae Spa organised a packed programme of events on Friday as part of the charity’s Wear It Red campaign.

They held competitions and raffles for customers, donated £5 from the cost of selected treatments to the fund, and sold a variety or red food and beverages, such as macaroons.

Altogether £178.40 was collected.

Spa Manager Tracey Lilburn said: “Because health and fitness are at the heart of the Aqua Vitae spa, we fully support the work of the British Heart Foundation.”
