Steve Wright – at that time a DJ with Radio One – paid a surprise visit to an all-night sponsored disco at Holbeach St Johns.

The radio star had been performing at South Holland Centre in Spalding earlier in the evening but went to the village hall to meet 17-year-old Diane Willcox, who had been confined to a wheelchair since a road accident the previous year.

The disco was held to raise money for physiotherapy equipment for Diane, who had previously lived in the village but had moved with her parents to a bungalow in Holbeach.
