A fundraising initiative that began more than 60 years ago in Ilkeston’s Old Park Ward is appealing for more help. The committee, based at the Welcome Hall, looks after the needs of elderly residents. Organiser Ann Bagshaw said: “Anyone can join by becoming a member for 50p per week. The extra support would enable us to maintain the Welcome Hall and provide for pensioners, who each receive a monetary gift at Christmas.” Call Ann on 0115 9320359 for more information.
