Two good causes have received a donation from King Edward VI School in Morpeth.

A total of £1,200 was collected by the School Council during a non-uniform day and £600 each was recently given to the Wansbeck Valley Food Bank and The Percy Hedley Foundation. KEVI senior students presented the cheques to Sheila Coltman, a fund-raiser for the foundation, and Linda Fugill, project manager for the food bank.
