KEEP your donations coming for our Jubilee Jam Jar Appeal.

We now have more £100 for our Diamond Jubilee campaign. The News has teamed up with Amber Valley Borough Council and needs your help to pay for a tree and plaque to be installed in the town to mark the Queen’s 60-year reign.

Since then, the News Corner shop on King Street has kindly been collecting jam jars overflowing with coppers from generous readers.

We are aiming to raise £200, however if we exceed that amount we may be able to plant another tree or ask readers to nominate other good causes and charities to receive the donations.

We are asking you to donate your pennies, the ones you would normally collect in jam jars or pots around the house, so we can do something really special in Belper to mark the Diamond Jubilee.

If you wish to donate your jam jars of cash you can drop them off at the News Corner, at the top of King Street, opposite the Market Place in Belper, or at our office in Ripley at 27 Grosvenor Road.
