A CITY pub group has named its chosen charity for the year.

The Durham-based Angel group will be raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young (Cry).

“It just so happens that we were debating about who we would have as the 2014 nominated charity.”

A sponsored walk from Durham to Newcastle has already been staged and further events are planned.

Cry aims to reduce sudden cardiac death among the young by screening and education.
