Four groups are celebrating after receiving financial support to ensure their work continues and expands.

Backworth-based MG Northumbria raised more than £14,500 at its Classics in Corbridge car show in July.

Officials decided to split the money between ten organisations across the north east, including Ashington-based Teardrop, Cramlington Voluntary Youth Project, Seaton Delaval Arts Centre and Northumbria Blood Bikes.

Northumbria Blood Bikes is launching a volunteer motorcycle courier service to provide an out of hours service to the NHS to carry vital blood, samples and other urgent items across the region, and needed a second bike.
