President of Rotary Amble and Warkworth, Dave Shoemaker, presented a cheque for £300 to Brambles Childcare Centre in Amble.
Dave said: "I was most impressed with the facilities provided by this excellent, not-for-profit community organisation which provides a much needed service for children in our community. Rotary had no hesitation in agreeing this donation from the proceeds of our annual Christmas collection.
