Revellers partied the night away at Spalding’s South Holland Centre to raise money for Cancer Research UK and the Callum Pite Smile Fund.

The autumn charity ball was organised by the Crazy Fliers, a group of friends who fundraise for charity every year.

Guests enjoyed a disco and live band and there was also a raffle, auction and the popular heads and tails game to raise extra cash.

One of the organisers, Bruce Thompson, explained: “Crazy Fliers was set up two years ago after the daughter of a work colleague (at Wingland Foods) passed away from diabetes.

“So last year we did a charity skydive for Diabetes UK and the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire Air Ambulance. It was so successful we decided to raise more money this year.”

As well as Cancer Research UK, the group are fundraising for the Callum Pite Smile Charity, set up in memory of the youngster, who passed away aged 14 on New Year’s Day 2013.

Money raised goes towards helping other young people undergoing treatment for cancer.
