A legendary piece of football memorabilia helped the Conservative Party’s Skegness branch raise more than a thousand pounds to help volunteers save lives in Lincolnshire.

The Skegness Conservatives’ Autumn Ball held at the Suncastle on Saturday raised a total of £1,075 for LIVES First Responders.

Much of the impressive tally was raised through a charity auction, compered by Conservative councillor and stand-up comic Sid Dennis, which featured a 1966 replica England World Cup shirt signed by 28 capped player Nobby Stiles.

East Lindsey District Council’s Portfolio holder for the environment Coun Tony Bridges bought the piece of memorabilia for £100. Guests, including MP for Boston and Skegness Mark Simmonds, also enjoyed a four-course meal and entertainment.
