A strawberry tea held by Wansbeck Trefoil Guild raised £500 to be split between the Alzheimer’s Society and Ashington Blind Club.
Guests enjoyed home-made refreshments, followed by bowls of strawberries and cream, in the garden of guild member Jean Jones’s home.
Jean said: “We chose these charities as we wanted to help people living with conditions that could easily affect anyone of us.
“The blind club, in addition, is local.”
The Trefoil Guild is an adult version of the girl guides, organising various social activities. To find out more about it, go to www.trefoilguild.co.uk
