ILKESTON’S French twin town has given £100 to a town charity, in place of its usual civic gift.

Chair of Ilkeston’s twinning association Ann Hill presented Ben’s Den with a cheque from the Chalons-en-Champagne group this week.

She said: “I think it’s brilliant because we don’t have a twinning room like they do where we can hang plaques. It’s marvellous that they have given to a charity here in Ilkeston.”

She said Ilkeston’s group will be returning the favour during their visit to France in Easter 2013.
