Guests will be shaken, not stirred, at this year’s James Bond-themed annual ball in aid of Spalding’s Johnson Community Hospital.

This year’s ‘Thunderball’ event on July 4 will once again raise money to directly support patients, visitors and staff at the hospital, with the proceeds divided between the hospital’s League of Friends and Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust Charitable Funds.

From 7pm, guests can expect to dance the night away at Springfields Events and Conference Centre, Spalding, with music from The Sensational Soul Band and returning guest artist Will Silver.

The fun doesn’t end there, with each ticket also giving guests a three-course dinner, a disco and a variety of Casino Royale-style entertainment.

Simon Temple, chairman of the Johnson Community Hospital Ball Committee, said: “This will be the seventh year we have organised the ball and each time we are overwhelmed by the support we receive from the local community.

“To date, we have raised more than £17,000, all of which has gone back to support those who use and work at Johnson Community Hospital.

“We have taken the sad decision that this year’s ball will be the last organised by our committee, but we want to end on a high and make this our swansong – our most glorious party yet.”

Tickets cost £35 each and are available to book online at
