On your marks for charity

A CHARITY hopes to pull in the punters for its next fund-raiser.

Morpeth-based Drout, which supports people with alcohol addiction, is staging a fun-packed race night to boost its coffers.

The event will take place at Morpeth Conservative Club in Newgate Street on Wednesday, from 8pm.

Tickets cost £3 on the door.

All proceeds will go towards helping Drout provide one-to-one support and advice at its Bridge Street premises and through a telephone hotline, as well as to offer complementary therapy.
