Around 150 special educational needs children had a whale of a time at the Roger Tuby fun fair in Spalding on Thursday.

The showman always donates free rides at an annual afternoon event organised by Spalding Lions.

Children enjoying two hours of fun were from Gosberton House School, The Priory School, Garth School, the speech and language department at Monkshouse Primary and The Chappell Centre.

Lion Sally Sneath said: “It was brilliant. We had lots of lovely, smiling faces and lot of thank yous as the children went round all of the rides.”

Youngsters went on rides including the dodgems, Disco Fever, the tea cups and waltzers.

“We are very grateful to Roger and his wife, Sophie, for allowing us to do this,” said Sally. “Some of the children would perhaps not get the chance to go to the fair without a day like this.”

There were adult helpers from the schools and the Lions lent helping hands too.
