A FUN day in Belper raised more than £500 in a bid to help build a better future for people with epilepsy.
The action-packed event at the Railway Hotel, on King Street, was organised by Louise Warman, 42, of Belper, who suffers from epilepsy.
She said that, with money still to come in from a sponsored walk, the total amount raised for the charity Epilepsy Action will smash through the £1,000 barrier.
“It was a good day,” said Louise. “A big thankyou to all the local shops who donated prizes for the raffle and tombola.”
Earlier in the day, 13 people donned fancy-dress to do a nine-mile walk from Matlock Bath to Belper.
