MORE than £500 has been raised for chairty by an Ashbourne woman following her 75th birthday party.
Audrey Connors invited people to her daughter’s house in Rodsley for the celebration and asked for donations to the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance instead of gifts.
Mrs Connors, who presented £550 to the charity, said: “I would like to thank all my guests for their very kind donations.
“The air ambulance is such a worthy cause as you never know when you might need them and they rely heavily on donations from the public.”
Mrs Connors also expressed thanks to her daughter and son-in-law for hosting the party.
