A WORKING men’s club from Heanor has raised £1,524 for the air ambulance after one of its members suffered a horrific leg injury while using a rotovator and needed the mercy crew’s help.

Malc Barton, 76, of Northern Road, Heanor, is still recovering from his terrible injury in March and says the charity-funded service is vital.

He said: “I was using a rotovator in the garden and slipped.

“They should not have to go cap in hand for money. They should be funded by the Lottery.

Malc presented the cheque on behalf of Sunnyside Working Men’s Club in Heanor to representatives from the service.
