Ball brings £8,000 bonanza to Spalding hospital charities
Flappers in their finery and chaps in flat caps were among 400 guests bringing the Roaring Twenties to life at ball expected to benefit Spalding hospital patients to the tune of £8,000.
Outpatients sister Sally Brown, who chairs Johnson Community Hospital Ball Committee, thanked everyone who contributed to a "fantastic night".
She said: "We were so impressed with the effort everyone made, particularly those who embraced our ‘Roaring Twenties’ theme.
"At this stage we estimate our guests and sponsors have helped us to raise approximately £8,000 on the night for Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust’s Charitable Funds and the Johnson Community Hospital League of Friends, which includes match funding from Santander for the second year running."
Over the last nine years the ball committee has raised nearly £60,000 in support of services for patients, visitors and staff at Johnson Community Hospital.
Guests at Springfields Events Centre on Saturday enjoyed a meal and entertainment from Mind the Gap and Leo Promotions Disco. Sponsors included Moore Thompson Accountants, Hills Department Store, Hayne Energy Services, Mr Oko and his sleep disorders centre and Long Sutton Barns.
