CHARITABLE artists donated £160 to Cancer Research.

Members and guests of the Hipperholme and Lightcliffe Art Society donated the money to a man who ran the London Marathon.

Kevin Benson, son of former member Bernie Benson, was presented with £160 for the charity.

He completed the run in under five hours and chairman Irene Scott praised his efforts.

Following the presentation, Leeds artist Robert Dutton gave a pastel demonstration with the view of the French Riviera as his subject.

The next meeting of the art society will take place on April 29, which will be a painting workshop.

Artist Alec Pearson will hold the May 6 art demonstration.
