Almost £5,400 was distributed to 30 local charities and organisations at a recent meeting. They had taken part in Morpeth Lions’ Dickens of a Draw initiative.

Club President Stuart Lewis said: “We are very pleased to organise the Dickens of a Draw, which enables local charities and clubs to raise much-needed funds for themselves.

“With the Lions arranging the prizes and the 10,000 books of tickets for those looking to fund-raise during the festive period, it is an excellent opportunity.

“We as an organisation are always looking for opportunities to help local organisations to help themselves.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those who kindly donated prizes, as without their support it would not be possible for organisations to raise much-needed funds.”
