Match in memory

A BASKETBALL match in memory of Belper man Darren Hodgkinson raised more than £450 for charity the British Heart Foundation.

The match was organised by members of Anthony Gell Ladies Basketball Team and featured a students versus teachers match played at the Wirksworth school.

The winners were the students by 49 points to 43.

They received a Darren Hodgkinson memorial trophy, donated by Ark Engineering Services.

Darren died suddenly last year.

The match was watched by a good sized crowd and organisers hope it could become an annual event.
