What a busy week, on the Sunday the following day after the nurses fundraising event we were setting up our stall once again at Spilsby Show promoting the British Heart Foundation, we did our usual Children’s Lucky Dip which always goes down well and everything went, we raised £150 for the BHF.

Nurses Fundraising Event 8th July

We woke up to another sunny day much to the relief  of our nurses who were having their first open garden fundraising event. the day was a great success and it was estimated over 400 people attended, many cups of tea and cake were consumed. The Heart Support Group members were helping out and also had a plant stall, which thanks to Lynda went very well and nearly everything went. On the day and with the raffle which all the prizes were donated by local shops and businesses in Louth, the total raised is in excess of £6000, this is to be used for Cardiac Rehabilitation Equipment.

Tea Dance

We held our first Tea Dance on the 10th May at the Coronation hall Woodhall Spa. This was the idea of Colin Beardsworth, he was a heart patient and had put the idea to Carol when she met him at Cardiac rehabilitation classes. Colin runs a dancing group and is known as ‘Just Colin’ and he offered his services to the group free of charge. We sold 69 tickets and the afternoon was a great success. Not only did everyone enjoy the dancing and the music but also the sandwiches, cakes and scones. Thanks to all the members who made such delicious cakes. At the end of the day we made a profit of £278. Everyone has decided it will be an annual event.

Meal out with Martin Brown & Presentation

On Monday evening the 19th December the committee, Burgh Le Marsh Volunteers and the Cardiac Nurses were invited to join Martin and Angela at the Royal Hotel in Skegness for a lovely meal. After the meal Martin presented the cardiac nurses with a cheque for £1100 and the Heart Support Group with a cheque for £600. This money was collected through sponsorship and promotion as he nominated our group and the cardiac nurses as his charity for the year.                                                                                                           We would like to give a big thank you too Martin for all his hard work raising this money for the two organisations.sn854388
