Cash raised for charity

VOLUNTEERS in Ilkeston helped to raise more than £900 for military charity Help for Heroes this weekend.

Collections were held at Tesco stores up and down the country on Saturday July 1 and Sunday July 2.

The Ilkeston Lions group and Round Table pitched in and helped to collect money at the Rutland Street superstore.

More than £946 was donated by customers.

The total was topped up by the Lions to an even £1,000.

Treasurer, Ray Birch, said: “Thank you to everybody that donated to this very worthwhile cause.”
