An appeal to help keep the bells ringing at an historic Ilkeston church has struck a note with local business Bellini’s Limited.

A donation of £400 has been made from its ‘Making a Difference Locally’ charity fund towards the restoration of the bells at St Mary’s Church, on the Market Place.

The ball bearings of the bells at St Mary’s have become rusty, and work to the tune of £33,000 is required.
