TWO sisters who organised a charity event for Ilkeston’s Flamsteed Centre have doubled their fundraising expectations.

Christine Remzi, whose husband John suffers from dementia and uses the Albert Street centre, and sister Marion Cliff raised £1,070 for the centre at the event last Thursday in Christine’s Ilkeston home.

“It was a great success,” she said, “We only hoped to raise £500 so this is marvellous.”

The cash was raised through stalls, tombolas and donations.
