the Heage branch of a charity will be celebrating a bumper year of fundraising at their annual general meeting on Monday, January 31.

Action Medical Research raised thousands of pounds throughout 2010 through a variety of initiatives and community support.

Now, they are all set to celebrate the achievements at the Black Boy pub in Heage — and also to start planning fundraising events for 2011.

Liz Allan, from the charity, said: “We will be celebrating. The garden party in May raised about £3,000, the recent Santa’s Sleigh outings in Heage and Nether Heage raised nearly £700 and the Black Boy’s Christmas raffle raised £200. Many thanks to all!”
