A CHARITABLE open garden event, held at East Keal helped raised funds for Lincs Ark, which is a Boston-based animal welfare charity.
Around £1,900 was raised through the garden event which was held for the first time at Windrush, East Keal recently.
Jacqueline Mitchell, volunteer for Lincs Ark, said: “Over 250 people arrived at the event and the funds raised will give the charity a good boost.
“We also had an unexpected surprise when a visitor’s husband flew by in a Spitfire returning from an event and did a double fly-by.”
The weather didn’t dampen the day and charity stalls, plants and a tombola went down a treat.
Lincs Ark Animal Welfare, was founded in December 2002 by a group of animal lovers from Boston and the Lincolnshire area.
