Leukaemia awareness fundraising month


GENEROUS north Derbyshire and Peak District fundraisers donated hundreds of pounds to mark a Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Awareness Month in September.

The Pantry Cafe Team from Staveley held a sponsored bike ride at Poolsbrook Country Park and two of their customers donated money in honour of a deceased friend.

A Chesterfield town collection also raised over £1,000 and a golden wedding anniversary couple donated £300 which they received in lieu of gifts.

Others to make donations included Staveley Bowls Club, Matlock salon A Cut Above, Chesterfield Boots No 7 Team and a couple who held a music night.
