Fun day for kids’ holiday charity

A bank holiday Monday barbecue and fun day bonanza is set for the Out of Town pub in Ripley this weekend.

The charity event, organised by mum of four Vanessa Leam of The Spinney, Ripley, is set to feature a bouncy castle, several stalls, a tombola and a raffle - with a top prize of VIP tickets to watch Cirque de Soleil at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham.

All proceeds will go to the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre, which helps takes youngsters from difficult homes on holidays to Skegness.

Vanessa said:“You really see the benefits that the children get when they go there.”

The event is set to run at the Butterley Hill pub on Monday from noon until 4pm. For more information call Vanessa on 07449596478.
