Dot and Roy are thanked for their support of LIVES

LOUTH’S Dot Chapman has been praised for the huge amount of money she has raised for the LIVES First Responders.

Along with Roy Beeton she organises very popular bingo sessions at the British Legion Hall in Northgate.

Last week she handed over a cheque for £3,000 to LIVES, bringing the total raised by the bingo for the First Responders to £8,000 so far.

On the same night Dot was presented with a special award for the fantastic support she and Roy have given to the lifesavers. She said of the award: “I couldn’t believe it. I was really pleased.”

For the last few years the bingo sessions have raised money for the responders, who are called out to people who collapse. Dot said: “They do a jolly good job and the money stays in Louth.”

She thanked her bingo helpers Anne, Henry, Dot, Bernard, Joan, Ros, Paul, John and Yvonne.

Steve Hyde, marketing and recruitment officer for LIVES, said: “Louth is so lucky to have this lady because she is doing this wonderful bingo evening with fabulous prizes and she is giving us an awareness in the town. Dot is a wonderful lady and Roy is a wonderful man and we fully appreciate the finances they have raised.”

The bingo sessions are held on Wednesdays at 7.30pm.
