The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal stands to benefit from this year’s Skegness Conservatives’ Autumn Ball.

The event at the Vine Hotel, Skegness, on Saturday, October 11, will include a charity auction and bucket collection for the annual appeal.

Skegness Conservative branch chairman Coun Carl Macey said: “We want to show our support for the marvellous work done by the Royal British Legion, particularly in this First World War anniversary year.”

Entertainment at the annual ball will be headlined this year by top soul and Motown singer Edwin Dukes, singing a playlist of the best known all-time classics.

Also performing will be popular local singer and entertainer Angie Fisher and another well-known local vocalist, Taff Lloyd, who features evergreen numbers from the Rat Pack.

MC for the evening will be Sid Dennis, who will not only provide a comedy stand-up routine giving his ‘take on the world’ but will also team up with his son Nik Dennis to perform a Meatloaf Tribute.

Nik will also be the DJ for dancing following the three-course dinner.

Tickets for the Autumn Ball, priced at £25, can be obtained from Michelle Martin, at 44 Richmond Drive, Skegness, tel 01754 761184, mobile 07990890921.
