Vintage Fair raises thousands for Hospice

5th November 2019
North Lincolnshire people with a passion for the past have flocked to a Vintage Spectacular raising over £4,330 for a local hospice.

Vintage enthusiasts dressed up in their finest outfits to enjoy music from the thirties, forties and fifties at Lindsey Lodge Hospice’s annual Vintage Spectacular at Redbourn Club, Scunthorpe, which showcased vintage stalls, a Blitz Cafe and dinner and dancing into the evening.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice Senior Manager, Marketing and Income Generation Jenny Baynham said: “Hundreds of people visit our event every year, which really has become one of the major events on the vintage lover’s calendar.

“The mixture of live music, dancing and such a variety of vintage stalls selling clothes, furniture and accessories, as well as a Vintage Hairdresser means there’s a real buzz all day long, and when we clear the stalls away for our evening supper and dance, the place really does come alive – it’s always a sell-out event!

The event raises much needed funds for the Burringham Road hospice, which is run as an independent charity to provide free of charge, specialist care to North Lincolnshire people with any progressive life-limiting illness, and supports their family and carers during illness and into bereavement.

Jenny added: “We’re a local charity, serving our local community, and every penny raised at this event will go towards ensuring we continue to provide the best possible hospice care now and in the future, so we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to support us, and we hope to see them all again next year!”
