A fabulous selection of headwear was on display during the successful first outing of a novel new charity fundraiser organised by Skegness Rotary Club.
More than 50 generous women attended the Hats and Hands Ladies Afternoon Tea event, raising £520 for the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.
The women gathered at the Vine Hotel, Skegness, in their finest hats, headwear and fascinators for an afternoon of tea, cakes and musical entertainment on Friday, October 26. 
Event organiser, Skegness Rotary Club’s community and vocation committee chairman Carole Cameron, was impressed with the event’s success and hopes it can be repeated next year
She said:”The headwear was absolutely fabulous - we were thrilled that everyone made such a great effort.”

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all the local businesses who donated great prizes for our raffle and to the Rotarian men who came down to help out in their bowler hats.”
Women affiliated with the rotary club journeyed from far and wide to enjoy the refreshements and watch a talented singer perform a collection of hits from the 1940s through to the 1970s.
The proceeds of the event were presented to Caroline Swinton of the St Barnabas Hospice - which had been selected as one of Skegness Rotary Club’s chosen charities for this year.
Carole explained: “It’s a local hospice and supports the nurses in Skegness Hospital so it is a good cause for us to support.”
