Staff at The Salon on Ilkeston Road, Marlpool, raised £680 for Moorfields Eye Hospital after two raffles were held this year.

Owner Marisa Ellis, mum of Para-triathlete David Ellis, said the hairdressers had raised more than £4,000 for the charity to fund research into sight conditions over the past eight years.Pictured is Marisa and son David. David has also landed a Ripley & Heanor News Sports Award. See pages 24 & 25.
