Fundraisers at branches of the Royal British Legion women’s section across Derbyshire have bucked the recession by collecting more money than in the previous year.

They amassed £11,040, which was up by over £1,400, handing over the proceeds at the annual Purse Presentation ceremony hosted by Youlgrave branch members at the village hall.

Mr Andrew McCloy, member of the Peak National Park Authority and editor of The Bugle, received the purses. He is pictured with Janice Bacon, treasurer of Youlgrave branch.
