Staff and customers at Beacon Bingo in Ilkeston are celebrating after helping to raise a record £110,000 in just 12 months for CHIPS, a children’s charity which provides specialised wheelchairs for young people with severe mobility problems. The money raised has resulted in 17 deserving youngsters around the country receiving state-of-the-art wheelchairs, including two children in Ilkeston, which will allow them to enjoy the freedom of movement every person needs.
