FIREFIGHTERS in Skegness have thanked the generous guests at a recent ball who raised almost £1,000 for a charity helping their wounded and retired colleagues.

The Firefighters’ Ball held at Grand Central, Skegness, raised £975 for the Fire Fighters Charity through ticket sales, raffles and donations on the night.

Firefighter Gemma Wilkinson said: “It was a very successful evening with great food, brilliant entertainment and good company - everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their support by either joining us at the ball or contributing to the evening by providing photography, raffles prizes and entertainment which all added to the success of the evening.

“And a special thank you to Matty Dickinson and Gary Bangham at Grand Central for providing an excellent venue with delicious food.”
