A CHARITY night held at a Bedlington restaurant has raised almost £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Around 70 people attended the fundraiser at Ashianna’s Bangladeshi Restaurant in Front Street West, which raised £925.

The evening included a raffle and a wine auction.

Restaurant owner Hussain Ahmed said the event was so successful, he would like the organisers, John and Pam Lee, of Bedlington, to host the fundraiser twice a year.

“I am very happy to be able to participate in and support these fundraising events,” Mr Ahmed said.
