“Talented members of our group put on the show to raise funds for the Spilsby Theatre Restoration Fund. Newton and Fallowell Estate Agents Spilsby came forward and offered to match the money we raised.

“We made over £250 in ticket sales, a raffle and Christmas cake auction and I’m delighted with the generosity of Newton and Fallowell who have donated £250 making the final amount raised to over £500. We all want to see this beautiful and historic building restored to its former glory and I’d like to thank everyone involved for their donations, hard work and support.”

The next meeting of East Coast Steampunks is on Tuesday, November 27, 7.30pm at The Royal Oak pub, in Chalk Pit lane, Candlesby.
