Money for the League

Memory Lane Manor Hotel cheque presentation.
Memory Lane Manor Hotel cheque presentation.

Regulars and staff from the Manor Hotel in South Wingfield look to have been busy raising funds for a good cause in this picture from our archives.

It shows a cheque being presented to Ripley Hospital Leaue of Friends for £250. The League raises money for equipment at the community hospital, which serves the town and surrounding area. On the left of the picture is former League stalwart Geoff Bonsall, who gave up his role with the charity after moving from the area. We assume the rest of those pictured are from the venue. The cheque gives away when this shot was taken of course – in January, 1986.
