The Rotary Club Ripley held a special meeting at the Lumb Farm, Marehay, to present donations to charitable organisations, with money raised from two of the club’s community fund raising events.

Special guests were Paula North from Rainbows Hospice for children and young people and Maura Teage from the Air Ambulance.

£1,500 was raised from the Rotary Club’s Amber Valley’s Got Talent Shows, with £750 going to each charity and was presented by the club’s president Marie Adams.

There was a further presentation of £635, which was raised by a 60s rock and roll night and was again presented by president Marie Adams to Rainbows Fundraiser, Paula North.

The hospice was president Marie’s chosen charity for her year in office.
