EVERYTHING to pamper a woman was brought together in a successful fundraiser at Gedney Victory Hall.

About 20 providers of treatments and treats helped raise over £400 towards the refurbishment expenses at the hall, thanks to organisers Chris Pickard, who is on the hall committee, and her friend Sandra Portass, who is secretary.

Surprisingly though, of the facials, nail treatments, people selling handbags, linen, make-up and cup cakes, the most popular attractions in the hall were the three people performing tarot readings.

“They were queuing up for those and some of them queued for over an hour,” said Chris. “Basically, we had everything to pamper a woman and they had a lot of treatments as well, but that was the most popular thing of the evening.”

As a result of that Chris and Sandra have organised a psychic evening to raise funds for the hall on Friday, June 3, again at Gedney.

The hall refurbishment was Lottery funded but extra money is needed to buy items such as chairs and cutlery.
