Ponteland doctors raising money for Kenyan village

DOCTORS in Ponteland are raising cash for healthcare in Africa.
Ponteland Medical Group have put up an exhibition of 30 photographs by local artist Jan Radwanski, of Darras Hall, in their reception area as part of their campaign to raise money to send a Land Rover ambulance to Mbita Village in western Kenya.
Most of the images in this exhibition are of the Tyne Bridge under construction. Others include rare images relating to Newcastle United from 1895 to 1918.
