These photographs were taken on the 7th December 2001 at various pubs in the Ripley area, Derbyshire, England. The Ripley Guisers were out on the four Fridays before Christmas. Visiting some fifteen pubs each night (and performing twice in some). The final collection, including the proceeds of their Boxing Day bag, was £1293.97 for the Friends of Ripley Hospital. It was handed to Ripley Hospital on the 27th December 2001. Many congratulations to Ripley.
