A GROUP of selfless Sandilands residents are going the extra mile to make sure local charities get the fundraising they need.

Community Spirit, an organisation initially created for last year’s Royal Wedding, raises money for local causes by holding events and fundraisers in the area.

This benevolent group of friends could be seen at last year’s Bathing Beauties Festival and Christmas Fayre, and have more exciting plans for 2012.

Secretary Dave France said: “We’re still very new to this, but it’s starting to take off.

“We began by working with Mablethorpe Tourism Forum for the Royal Wedding, and last month we handed over a cheque for £500 to Sutton on Sea LIVES First Responders.

“But we also have events planned to help out St Andrews Children’s Hospice.”

Look out for posters going up around the area for the planned Queen’s Jubilee celebrations in June.

But before that the group are holding a car boot sale on April 8, and a 1940s dance night on May 5, both at the Grange and Links Hotel in Sandilands.
