An evening of scary and spooky Halloween fun has seen more than £10,000 raised to help children suffering from diabetes.

Entertainment for the evening was provided by a disco and live music from Scratch the Cat.

Money was raised from a live auction, silent auction and raffle and guests were also treated to a three-course carvery meal.

The event – in its second year – raised more than £10,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund and the children’s diabetes team at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston.

Gemma Robinson, whose daughter Faith suffers from diabetes, said: “It was an amazing, fantastic night and we are totally blown away by how much we raised.

“Thank you to all the sponsors and everyone who bought tickets and made it such a brilliant success.

“We will definitely be doing it again next year.”
