Charity’s thanks

THE Heage committee of the Action Medical Research charity has issued a thank you to fundraisers.

Before Christmas, the group held a concert at St Luke’s Church, Heage, and also sent a Santa Sleigh round the village and Nether Heage.

A total of £697.37 was raised as a result of the two events and now the committee is expressing its thanks. A spokeswoman said: “We would like to thank all of those who helped make the events so successful.”

Action Medical Research is a UK-wide medical research charity dedicated to helping babies and children.
