Regular fundraiser Glynis Scalese has raised £500 for the Air Ambulance with a charity Sixties evening at Pinchbeck village hall.

Glynis, who usually raises money for MENCAP, said the evening went really well and everyone enjoyed dancing to singer Simon Lee.

There was a raffle and hog roast and a draw for an oven provided by Howden’s Joinery of Spalding.

“We chose the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance because it is local and you never know when you might need it,” Glynis told the Free Press.

“I work as a nurse and I have seen, first hand, a life saved because of the Air Ambulance.

“They are so important as they respond quicker than 
anything else and get patients to hospital quicker. They are excellent.”

Glynis, who is planning 
another fundraiser towards the end of the year, added: “A lot of hard work goes into 
organising these fundraisers but they are definitely worth it and I love doing it.”

She thanked Nick and Caroline for putting on an excellent hog roast, Paul at Howden’s for his generous donation, MP John Hayes for drawing the raffle, and all the local businesses who generously supplied raffle prizes.

“It was just a wonderful evening,” she said.
