Helping hand for county charity

A COUNTY charity can branch out its activities after securing extra resources.

Northumberland County Blind Association (NCBA) has received a laptop and gardening vouchers from the Northumbria Police Charities Fund.

Fund Trustee Sarah Dodds said: “NCBA staff do an amazing job providing an essential service for adults who have impaired vision and we’re delighted to help by donating a laptop computer and gardening vouchers.”

Association Chief Executive Lorraine Dryden said: “The laptop will be put to good use by vision impaired people in the IT suite.”
