A WAINFLEET fundraising group has reached a major milestone after the total it has raised for local good causes passed the £100,000 mark.

A. A. Good Causes in Wainfleet passed the significant milestone after 15 years of tireless fundraising for over 20 local groups.

And Allan Ranyard, who helped set up the group, has spoken of his delight after hitting the milestone following the latest cash handout earlier this month.

Three cheques for £1,000 each were handed over to representatives from the RNLI, Macmillan and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance during a bingo raffle in Wainfleet’s Coronation Hall recently.

The event itself also raised over £700 for Help for Heroes on the day.

And in raising this cash A. A. broke through the six-figure barrier.

“It’s like a dream,” said Allan. “We’ve been doing it now for about 15 years and this latest presentation took us over the £100,000 mark.”

He added that he had received a lot of favourable comments from people in the wake of reaching the impressive figure.

The Skegness lifeboat station volunteers have congratulated A. A. Good Causes on reaching the milestone.

They said: “Everyone at Skegness lifeboat station would like to thank A. A. Good Causes for their endless hard work supporting the RNLI.

“As a charity that relies on voluntary donations to keep the beaches and seas safe, we appreciate how difficult raising money can be and extend our congratulations for reaching such a phenomenal milestone.”
