Christmas fundraiser will support Spalding charity Ella's Project
A few tickets are still available for a fundraising Christmas party at the South Holland Centre in Spalding.
It is in aid of Ella’s Project, a charity that collects clean and unsoiled children’s clothes for ages from 0-5 years old and processes and distributes them to those who are in desperate need.
The party is on Friday, December 6, and tickets cost £15, with a 10% discount for parties over ten.
Mark Le Sage, who runs Ella’s Project, named after his daughter, will be performing at the event with his band ‘Zebra.’
He said: “Following on from the success of the Zebra Halloween party, raising funds for Ella’s Project, there are now only 30 tickets left for the biggest Christmas party in Spalding.
“Your hosts Zebra are looking forward to another fun-filled night of music and dancing. There is a buffet and music will also be provided by one of the area’s top DJs.”
Zebra’s bass player, Karl Gernert, said: “The Halloween bash was such a laugh and everyone made a real effort to dress up, so we are hoping for a few Christmassy outfits on December 6.”
The party starts at 8pm, with all proceeds being donated to Ella’s Project.
Ella’s Project was set up and linked with Mark’s charity The Rightside Trust.
It came about after he began donating clothes Ella had grown out of to charities such as the women’s refuge in Boston.
The charity has since redistributed children’s clothes to Syrian refugees in Greece, Grenfell Tower victims and others in need at home and abroad.
This summer, Mark was awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for his community and charity work.
As a former prison officer, he has been recognised for his work in helping prisoners away from a life of crime, violence and a cycle of re-offending.
He is also a registered nurse and a member of Spalding’s Royal British Legion and an organiser of the Spalding Festival.
