A group of car enthusiasts have raised more that £12,000 for 16 charities, including one in Cramlington.

MG Northumbria’s ‘Classics in Corbridge’ event in July raised the cash, which will see several organisations benefiting, including Jessica’s Sarcoma Awareness.

The charity received £1,000 of toys and gadgets at a presentation at Argos in Cramlington, which will be given to children with cancer who are in hospital at Christmas this year.

Jessica Robson was diagnosed with alveolar sarcoma cancer in November 2010 aged 14, but passed away in May 2014.

Jessica’s sister and parents are keeping Jessica’s inspiration alive by keeping her fundraising going.
