A local woman has announced plans for a charity bash in aid of the Stroke Association in memory of her popular and well-known gran in the tenth anniversary year of her death.

Shan Chapman will host the three-course meal and champagne reception in the Suncatle on Saturday, March 8 from 7pm to late, to honour the memory of Pat Fountain.

A hog roast, live band and other entertainment is also lined up for the evening.

And Shan’s fundraising won’t be stopping there - she is currently in training for the London Marathon on April 13 - again in aid of the Stroke Association in memory of her gran.

Shan’s gran Pat was well-known locally for her work as a coach in a number of sports, from athletics and swimming to netball.

Shan said: “I’m raising money for the Stroke Association, all in memory of my gran. “he was well known as a swimming coach, and also coached Skegness runners and the Abbey Angels netball team.

“It’s the ten year anniversary of her passing. I want everyone to come to the charity bash and have a really good time and remember my gran. She used to love the Suncastle parties when we were younger,” she added.
