THE January meeting of Darlington Inner Wheel saw a cheque presentation by president Lynne Waterfall-Brown to Martin Stand from the Listening Post.

The charity puts volunteers into schools throughout Darlington to listen to children who may be suffering from problems that they cannot speak to their parents or teachers about.

The amount, £1,484.90, was raised at the president's annual coffee morning, held in November at St Augustine's church hall in Darlington.
