A WELL DESERVED THANK YOU FROM MARIE CURIE
Following the recent collection days at Tesco and Aldi for the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal a certificate of appreciation has been sent to to Ilkeston Lions Club.
The collections at the end of February and the beginning of March raised £1911.43 which will fund 95 hours of nursing care for more people living with a terminal illness
in their own homes.
A very special thank you was sent to Lion Steve Lynch who stood for 50 hours over 7 days during this time.
Marie Curie say that "Steve was a fantastic help, supporting us at the collections when we had cancellations and taking materials along to collections for us. Steve personally
help to fund almost 80 hours of nursing care."
WELL DONE STEVE.
This years Carnival will take place on Saturday 13th June 2015
The planning meetings are now underway and
bookings are now being taken for the carnival.
We are searching for a Carnival Queen for this year and we also thought it would be nice to have some (if not all)
of the Queens from the last 25 years as part of our celebrations.
If you wish to have a stall on the carnival ground, place an advert in the programme, enter a Tug O' War team, have a float in the parade or be the carnival queen
