The memory of brave Pinchbeck teenager Callum Pite (14) was kept alive at Spalding Common Community Hall where a disco was held to raise money for a charity in his name.

Youngsters and adults supported the event on Easter Saturday which featured entertainment by Gedney Hill DJ James Gannon and a raffle where prizes were donated by businesses, including Intergreen (UK) of Holbeach and Peterborough-based DHL Spectrum for Debenhams.

Organiser Bruce Patterson said he was hopeful that about £500 has been raised for Callum Pite’s Smile Charity and thanked members of his family for supporting the event.

Bruce added: “It was a nice evening and we’re quite pleased that we achieved what we set out to do.

“People were making comments that the disco was raising money for a worthy cause and it was really important that we showed as much support to Callum’s family as we could.”
