Event raises £1,000 for air ambulance

More than £1,000 was raised during an event at Belper Specsavers to help keep the Derbyshire Air Ambulance flying.

Volunteers collected donations outside the King Street store, with two donning Pirates of the Carribean outfits. Meanwhile, a tombola and raffle helped ramp-up the total and mayor Deborah Biss, pictured second right, opened the event.
