Stamford's Shoestring Theatre have handed over a £200 cheque to Browne's Hospital after it was used for their performance of the Roses of Eyam as part of the Stamford Festival in June.

Ken Walsh, the director of the historical drama by Don Taylor, said: "It was wonderful to be able to perform the story of the Derbyshire plague village in the great atmosphere of Browne's garden with such historic buildings as a backdrop.

"We are very grateful to the governors for allowing us the use of their facilities."
