World Cup fever kicked off in Spalding ten years ago with a fun day at a motor showroom.

Hyundai franchise EMG hosted the event in the sunshine on St John’s Road as a steady stream of England supporters passed through the doors.

To win, the girls had to research an NHS career opportunity and produce a CV, job description and job advert for the role.

They chose the role of a counselling psychologist and it bagged them a £50 Amazon voucher each!
