A Northumberland school is set to get hooked on fishing with thanks to the Northumbria Police Charities Fund.

Haltwhistle Community Campus needed extra fishing equipment to allow more students to learn the art of fishing and the fund was able to help them with a donation of 12 fishing rods and reel sets.

Sarah Dodds of Northumbria Police's Charities Fund said: "The the new fishing rods will mean more students can now learn how to fish and are able to take part on more trips using the new equipment.

"I was delighted to be able to assist with the purchase of new rods and I am sure the children will benefit from it and enjoy many hours of fun with their school friends."

The fund has also recently awarded donations to other organisations across North Tyneside and Northumberland including the North Tyneside Disability forum, who were awarded £600 of arts and crafts equipment, a £150 gardening voucher to Bloomers Gardening Group, Morpeth and pedal cycle equipment to WAT Bus Community Transport, Ashington.

The Charities Fund helps individuals, organisations and good causes throughout the Northumbria Police area.
