STAFF at a Darlington hospital have raised £2,000 for a mental health charity.

Staff at Middleton St George Hospital raised the money for the local branch of MIND.

Staff have been organising charity raffles, holding dress down days, as well as making regular donations to meet their target figure of £1,000.

The hospital matched this amount, making £2,000.

Linda Stephens, the hospital director presented the cheque to Helen Mills, managing director of Darlington MIND.
