There are a number of good reasons to attend the Rotary Club of Spalding and Welland’s black tie charity ball.
The club will be holding its fifth annual Two Lips ball at Springfields Events Centre next Saturday.
As well as raising money for local charities, there are some outstanding lots in the popular auction.
These include two tickets for the Test match between England and South Africa at Trent Bridge on Sunday, July 16, kindly donated by Rotarian Alan Porter.
Alan had invited Kenyan cricketer Basharat Hassan to the ball, though he is unable to attend. However, the man who opened for Notts CC for 12 years and is currently vice-president of that club will present a signed copy of his new book to the winning ticket holder.
Another prized lot is the personalised England rugby shirt donated by Jonathan Joseph, who is England’s number 13 and grandson of Rotarian Rodney Britten. The shirt was worn in the England/France match on August 22, 2015, and is inscribed to celebrate the award of his 12th England cap. A personal framed photograph is also included, showing Jonathan at the wheel of his new England team BMW.
Live Promotions is offering tickets to three of this year’s events: Peterborough Truckfest on April 30/May 1, Billy Ocean at Lincoln Castle on July 8, and Icons of the 80s at Burghley House on June 10.
Finally, Sedge Estate Agency has donated a three-night stay for up to six people in a luxury lodge at Tydd St Giles Golf and Country Club, with facilities for golf, fishing, indoor pool, bar and restaurant.
Tribute band The Driftars are playing at the ball, and there is a disco and three-course meal, in addition to the auction, raffle and gift tree.
