  • Teamwork needed to give money to charity

Love was in the air at Holbeach St Marks Village Hall during a super fun Valentine’s Disco.

Youngsters from Holbeach St Marks Primary School made sure there was more than one purpose to the disco though they raised money for St Barnabas Hospice after a balloon release.

The disco lasted about three hours, with tea, coffee, cakes and nibbles available to guests.

Bakkavor Pizza’s Site Employee Forum (SEF) sponsored the event, while Florals of Long Sutton supplied the helium for the balloons.

Adele Goddard, of Bakkavor Pizza, said: “The SEF often gives support to events like these and, every year, they sponsor this event which wouldn’t be possible without their help.”

Pupils bought a disco ticket for £2 and a helium-filled balloon, each one with a number and email address attached.

The balloons were then released to the world, with numbers given to each child that corresponded with their balloon.

The youngsters now have a wait until someone finds their balloon and contacts Bakkavor Pizza, with the first balloon to be found and contact made winning a prize for the lucky pupil.

The Valentine’s Day disco at the Holbeach St Marks Village Hall included a balloon release by youngsters attending to raise money for the St Barnabas Hospice.

The charity is an organisation who try to ensure everyone who is facing the end of their life in Lincolnshire receive dignified, compassionate care when they require it and where they ask for it.

Every year, the Site Employee Forum sponsors this event and it wouldn’t be possible without that help
