Newcastle Falcons players Will Montgomery and Toby Salmon visited Northumbria Police's station in Blyth to hand over 30 free tickets to support retired PC Claire Bradbury in her mission to raise funds after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Claire, who turned 50 this year, worked at Blyth as part of the Neighbourhood Policing Team for 10 years before retiring, and has set up a Just Giving page to support the charity Breast Cancer Now.
