The funds were raised at the Creswell and Whitwell Co-op stores via the 5p carrier bag charge along with long with a 1 per cent dividend donation.

Staff at Creswell Crags, an enclosed limestone gorge and visitor attraction, have decided to spend the money on replacing a stone map at the end of the park which is currently irreparable. The park will also launch its first official mascot thanks to the funds.

Rachel Wood, head of marketing at Creswell Crags is pictured accepting the £1,761 donation from Creswell Co-op manager Matt Chambers with Duncan Mcgregor, chair of the Heritage Trust.
