IT looks like there’s about to be some serious fundraising going on in this picture.

This is a shot from our archives and shows the Duffield branch of the Royal British Legion women’s section, we think.

It looks like the tombola is set to do a roaring trade. We are not sure what year this was or where the event took place, but looking at the background it seems to be some sort of pub or club.

We don’t think selling on the tombola has started yet as there seems to be an array of prizes left, but it seems like the women are about to start drawing the tickets. The event certainly looks a busy one and was sure to have raised plenty of funds for the cause.

We don’t have a year or any other information with this shot and would love to find out more. If you spot yourself or someone you know, or recognise the event then get in touch.

We also love to see your pictures of bygone Belper and the surrounding area.
