A support group will become picture perfect thanks to a donation from police.
The South East Northumberland Stroke Support Group now have their own cameras and equipment donated to them by the Northumbria Police Charities Fund.
The group, who meet monthly at venues in Bedlington and Cramlington, give opportunities to take part in a range of activities such as gentle exercise class, bingo and computer familiarisation courses.
They also host regular guest speakers who cover a range of topics to meet the different needs of people who have suffered from a stroke.
Northumberland Area Command Charities Trustee, Sarah Dodds, said: "The Northumbria Police Charities Fund are delighted to help out the South East Northumberland Stroke Support group who offer a chance for local people to meet others living with a stroke, as well as their carers."
Bill Wade, Chairman of the South East Northumberland Stroke Support Group, added: "Thank you to the Northumbria Police Charities Fund for this very kind donation.
"This equipment will enable the group to set up a camera club for our members who will benefit greatly."
Northumbria Police Charities Fund helps individuals, organisations and good causes throughout the Northumbria Police area.
