THE sounds of the 1960s and 1970s helped to raise money for several good causes on Saturday.

Members of Spalding Lions invited guests to put on their gladrags and take a trip down memory lane for their annual ’60s and ’70s night.

Having fun on the night are (from left) Serene Avery, Robert Avery, Tracy Hewlett, Wayne Hewlett, Lynne Collins, Jon Collins, Pete Bird and Sam Bird.

The event at Spalding Grammar School included a hog roast, disco and a raffle.

Although the final total raised at the evening is not yet known, organisers say the money will go into the Spalding Lions’ own charitable fund. The money is then used to help a number of worthwhile causes.

Spalding Lions member Mark Oldreive said: “It’s a really fun night.”

Spalding Lions are also busy preparing for their next fundraising event in partnership with Spalding Amateur Swimming Club.

Keen swimmers aged five and above are being asked to join a sponsored swim on Tuesday, where participants are swimming as far as they can in 20 minutes.

Spalding Lions will split any sponsor money 50/50 with a charity or club of the swimmer’s choice.

Sponsor forms are available from Pacey’s Bakery in Red Lion Street, Spalding, and any Spalding Lions member.
