When Mary and John Rich celebrated their Golden Wedding they told family and friends not to buy them gifts.
Instead the kind-hearted couple asked for donations to charity.
“We celebrated our anniversary in March,” said Mary, of Queen Street, Retford.
“We asked for people not to buy us gifts, instead we asked for donations to the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.”
“We got £800, which was brilliant.”
“We decided to give the money to the air ambulance because you never know if or when you may need them.”
“I don’t think they get any funding, it’s all from donations.”
The couple celebrated their anniversary with a big party with family and friends at the social club on Babworth Road.
