A group of sci-fi fans made a donation to a charity during an event at the National Space Centre.

Members of the Hyde Fund-raisers, a group of Doctor Who enthusiasts from all over the country, visited the city for the BritSciFi weekend, which was attended by former Doctors Colin Baker and Paul McGann.

The group handed over £200 to the Laura Centre, based in Leicester city centre, which offers bereavement counselling for free.

Charity spokesman Tony Whitmore said: "They're a group of fund-raisers based in the north who raise money primarily for Children in Need, but also make donations to charities at places where members are based.

"It started out as a hobby group 26 years ago and it's very neat the way they've turned their hobby into a fund-raising group.

"We're over the moon to receive the donation. Fund-raising isn't easy at the best of times and it's humbling to be chosen like this by a group that's not local."
