Gala raises £200 for hospice

A GALA hosted by Skegness Fellowship of Churches raised £200 for the Mayor of Skegness Coun Steve Kirk’s chosen charity for this year.

Reverend Ian Banks presented the cheque at a Skegness Town Council meeting on Wednesday.

Coun Kirk attended the gala last month and gave a talk on his chosen charity for his mayoral year - the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.

Following the talk there was a collection for the charity which raised the impressive total.

At the town council meeting Coun Kirk thanked Rev Banks and urged his fellow councillors to attend Church Farm Village’s Harvest Festival on September 25, at which the clergyman will be leading another sermon.
