A Facebook competition to guess the identity of carefully disguised celeb photos raised more the £600 for About with Friends.

Ann Lown - ably assisted by husband Malcolm - invited her Facebook friends to take part.

Each time an answer was guessed correctly, Mrs Lown put a pound in the pot and asked the guesser to do the same.

She dropped visted About with Friends to hand over a cheque for £603 which will be used towards decorating and kitting out the charity's new unit for members who need a little extra support.
