NEIGHBOURS on an Ilkeston street managed to raise £755 for charity following their Royal Wedding Street Party.

On Monday residents of Holmefield Crecent handed a cheque over to Tony Doyle, who provided the entertainment on the street on April 29 and who will pass the cash on to Help For Heroes.

Charitable residents have held coffee evenings every Tuesday, and held raffles and tombolas to raise the cash.
