A Spalding garden party raised £922 to be split between a charity for homeless teenagers, the Lighthouse Project, and the town’s Lighthouse Church.

Attractions included performances by Polka Dot theatre group.


Lighthouse Project executive director Jenny Tedbury said: “Although it was a sunny day we had a huge downpour in the middle but most people took shelter in the house or marquee and stayed with us.”


As well as providing accommodation for homeless teenagers, the project looks after young women with life-controlling issues and teenage mums and babies.
