From ‘glam dad rockers’ to pony rides, dancing and fire displays – there was something for everyone at a charity fun day in Kirton.

The fundraiser was held at Graves Park in aid of the Butterfly Hospice in Boston.

Despite the wet weather, which saw the event draw to an early close, visitors turned out to see the various attractions on offer and try their hand at some fun activities.

Aging rockers ‘Glamdads’ performed live on stage, while youngsters from A J Dance showed off their finesse.

There were also displays of Taekwondo, pony rides, and a Lincs Fire and Rescue fire truck.

The event was organised by Graves Park Social Club to boost funds for the hospice, which is the club’s chosen charity for the year.
