IT’S time to really get into the fundraising spirit and show the nation what Skegness has got.
With over three floors of fun activities, entertainments and much more planned for Grand Central in Grand Parade, this really is one of the hottest tickets in town to help celebrate and raise money for this year’s Children in Need event.
The night, will kick off with a children’s disco and Zumbatomic class at 6pm and this will be followed by a ladies’ Zumba class at 7.15pm to be held on Stage One.
But that’s not all, a men’s sponsored Zumba class, will be starting at 8pm and lots of members of the community and organisations have signed up to take part including; Skegness FC, RNLI, fire brigade, local paramedics, police, Morrisons and Argos, among others.
During this time, Rick and Ben from the Fitness Attic will also be doing a sponsored gymnastic ring work-out which will be suspended over the Grand Central stage.
A variety show, including local acts, will then follow and more fun and games will be held from 8.45pm.
The main stage will open with a taster of the new Grand Central resident cast featuring, Janice Sutton Productions.
The evening will be compered by local celebrity Stefan Michaels and throughout the night all of the fun from BBC One’s Children in Need coverage, will be shown on Skegness’s own projector screen.
There will also be a golf simulator, with chances to win free golf pro lessons, face painting, hair braiding, nail art and lots more.
Other prize competitions on offer on the evening include a chance to win a holiday for two to Spain.
And in the Aqua Lounge, 22 of Lincolnshire and the surrounding area’s best craft stalls will be selling their goods with coffee and cakes also available in the highest point in Skegness and of course there will be big screens showing the Children in Need coverage during the night.
