A CHARITY talent show organised by a Hexham veterinary surgery has raised thousands of pounds.

Scott Mitchell’s Got Talent, which took place on Friday, February 8, was organised by the vet surgery to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance.

The final total has now been revealed, and stands at an impressive £7,734.79.

Seven different acts comprised of staff and clients of the practice, with performances ranging from singing and dancing to puppetry.

But it was Jamie Murrary and Tony Johnston who stole the show, thanks to a “stunning” performance of Adele’s Someone Like You.

A raffle also took place on the night, with various prizes on offer.

The top prize – a ride-on tractor donated by Rickerby Ltd – was won by Hillary Hutchinson, who donated it to the auction and raised a further £220.

Mr Hutchinson formed the centrepiece of the evening’s programme, thanks to his story of receiving emergency treatment from the GNAAS in 2007.

A spokeswoman for Scott Mitchell’s said: “A huge thank you to everyone who made this wonderful evening possible and who donated so kindly.”
