Tireless Pinchbeck fundraiser Lorna Webb has helped boost funds for the air ambulance service with her annual festive coffee morning.

The 92-year-old was joined by her loyal and dedicated friends at her home in Poachers Gate where they brought in just over £400 for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

Lorna’s Christmas fundraiser is just one of a number of events that she and her friends organise throughout the year for various charities.

“We do a pancake event for St Barnabas Hospice and also raise money for Marie Curie, then in September we raise money for Macmillan,” Lorna said.

“I have always admired the work done by the air ambulance and I remember it landed on my brother’s field in Dowsby a couple of times and they helped people.

“We would like to say thank you to everyone who came along to support us and also to Brenda Robinson who made the cake for the raffle.
