Despite the rain forcing this summer’s Ilkeston Carnival to cancel, its organisers have dug deep to find £2,000 for the event’s chosen charity.

Ilkeston Lion Gemma Prati chose Macmillan Cancer Support as the charity to raise cash for at the annual event.

Current President Laura Rigby presented the cheque to Rachel Cliffe from Macmillan recently.

The showground at Rutland Rec’ was waterlogged last June, forcing the event to cancel.
