Ilkeston Rotary, again this year, entered a team in the annual Ilkeston 'bed push' in aid of the League of Friends of Ilkeston Hospital organisation. The race is against the clock and teams have to push a hospital bed - with patient - up Bath Street which is the town centre's main shopping street and quite a steep hill! Our thanks to The Worshipful the Mayor of Ilkeston, Councillor Mary Hopkinson for being our patient. Six teams took part and together, thanks to the generosity of the citizens of Ilkeston, they raised over a £1,000. Rumour has it that some of our team also did the push TWICE by helping another team out! Wow well done!
The photograph above shows the team being presented with a trophy by the Chairman of the League of Friends of Ilkeston Hospital, Mrs Eileen Knight.

Members of the Cantelupe Companion Club enjoyed a trip to Skegness on Wednesday 6th September, 2017 courtesy of Ilkeston Rotary Club. They took in the fairground, the arcades and the pier during their visit and the odd summer shower did not dampen their spirits. They dined on 'Chip shop alley', did a bit of souvenir shopping and savoured the floral displays of the pleasure gardens before making their homeward journey."A jolly time was had by all of us,"quipped a member of the group,"not just by the resort's famous Jolly Fisherman!"
