A HOTEL in County Durham has raised £10,000 for ten community charities, groups and clubs to mark its tenth anniversary.

Stanley Deaf Club, Shield Row Toddlers Group and PACT House Stanley are among the organisations to get £1,000 each from South Causey Inn, near Stanley.

The money was raised staff and guests at the venue.

Owner Susan Moiser said: “We wouldn’t be where we are today without the support of our local community and guests, so it was our absolute pleasure to give back and raise funds for ten ambitious local organisations.”
