ThiS week we feature another image submitted by Karl Adred.

The photograph shows The Peacock pub’s darts and dominos team raised money for the Ilkeston Community Hospital League of Friends.

The landlord spoke with Mr Aldred as he wanted Derby County players to come and hand over the cheque.

Mr Aldred recalled: “I tried to arrange for the team to be there but a lot of the first teamers could not make the presentation as they were at TV studios in London for This is Your Life for a club director.

“The club wanted to help out so sent some youth players and John McGovern along with the European Cup.”

The photo is one of many that Mr Aldred has given to the Advertiser from his collection from his time as the Ilkeston Lions president and League of Friends president and his working life at Booths factory, Charnos factory.
