The Two Lips charity ball has become one of the dates to look forward to on the Spalding social calendar... and this year’s event was equally successful.
Some 200 guests danced the night away to tribute band The Driftars at Springfields Events Centre as well as enjoying a three-course meal.
Organised by the Rotary Club of Spalding and Welland, its president John Syson gave the welcome and thanks, and the master of ceremonies was club member John Thacker.
The popular heads and tails game, a novelty gift tree and a raffle boosted the money made on the night and £1,000 of the £5,500 total came from the auction.
The most popular lot was an England rugby shirt signed by Bath centre Jonathan Joseph , which went for £420.
Other desirable lots at the fifth annual ball included a three-night break at Tydd St Giles golf club’s holiday lets, a meet and greet with cricket star Basherat Hassan during an England test match, and meals for ten at the Indus indian restaurant and the Woodland hotel.
It was a really successful night,” said Rotarian Peter Atkinson. “People really enjoyed dancing to the band, who were terrific, and the auction created a lot of interest and excitement.
Mr Atkinson said the rotary club intend to hold the event again next year.
