Life’s a beach as group looks to help charity

BUDDING artists are being invited to a charity event this weekend.

Newbiggin Arts Forum is holding ‘Art on the Beach’ in aid of Macmillan Nurses.

Artists, or those in an art group, are being encouraged to attend Newbiggin beach on Saturday between 11am and 3pm, with a range of activities for all the family taking place.

Brian Strachan, the arts forum gallery manager, said: “It’s a chance for Newbiggin Arts Forum and local artists to give something to Macmillan Nurses.”

Eddie Galvin, community arts development manager at the forum, added: “We asked the members which charity they would like to support and Macmillan came out on top.

“Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer and we want to help.”
