Local charities have benefitted from a night with The King of rock ‘n’ roll.
Sleaford and District Lioness Club held An Evening with Elvis tribute act night at Folkingham Village Hall in March and raised £1,300 for Cancer Research UK and other local charities.
President of the Lionesses, Tracy Arnold, has just visited Sleaford’s Cancer Research UK shop to present a cheque for £1,000 to the new manager, Anne Brown, who has recently taken over from Marjorie Johnson after many years, who will be continuing as a volunteer.
The Lionesses were given a tour of the shop to explain the work of the volunteers.
Mrs Arnold said: “We had up to 80 people at the Elvis night, which was really good.”
Mrs Brown thanked the group on behalf of her charity and said: “I am extremely grateful, it is an amazing donation.”
