Vintage Hollwood glamour came to Spalding at the weekend at the annual Kidney Research Ball.

The ball, held at Springfields Event Centre, was attended by over 200 people and raised £6,000 for the charity.

Richard Spurr, who organises the ball along with Hannah Robinson and Natalie Herring, said: “We’ve now raised over £30,000 for Kidney Research UK over the five years of doing the ball which is great.”

The trio raise vital funds for the charity which undertakes research for kidney patients, like Hannah and Natalie’s mother Pauline.

Pauline was born with a medical condition which has meant her kidney has continued to decline. Her condition is now stable through daily medication and check-ups.

Entertainment at the ball came from Russell Shaun, a rat pack singer, and party band Crazy Ape.

There was also a disco at the ball which was enjoyed by everyone, along with a four course meal provided by Caterwell East Anglia.

There was also a charity auction and a raffle for those at the ball to enter.

Richard said: “Everybody had a brilliant time and we’ve had some really good feedback.

“We are already planning next year’s event!”
