Medical staff, patients and the public attended an open charity day at Skegness Hospital.

The fundraising event provided £176 towards the purchase of a set of bariatric scales that are used for patients with weight and mobility problems.

Staff and patients baked cakes for a stall and local businesses provided tombola prizes.

Competitions were held to guess the weight of a special Skegness Hospital cake and the middle name of Sven the reindeer from the movie Frozen.

The cuddly toy Disney character was donated by Skegness based Bell Leisure.

Money for the scales will also be provided from the Skegness Hospital charitable fund with the equipment used across wards.
