A Louth business has raised more than £1,500 for two local good causes - LIVES and St Andrew’s Hospice.

The Thurlby Motors charity ball, organised by Gail Smith, was held at Kenwick Park and saw around 120 people join in the fun.

“It was a great success and we would like to thank everyone who supported the event and those who donated such fantastic auction items,” said Gail.

The ball has taken place for a number of years, but this is the first time they have supported the Hospice.

“It has been great fun to work with Gail and Thurlby Motors and their positive attitude in supporting the hospice, “ said ZaZa Warren, fundraiser for St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice, who went along to collect the cheque from Gail and Thurlby Motors managing director Richard Walsh.

“The hospice relies on the generosity of people to meet its running costs and we couldn’t do it without people like Gail organising events such as this.

“I am really looking forward to next year’s ball and hope we can raise just as much, if not more, for both these worthy charities.”

Plans are already underway for next year’s ball, which will be on October 29.
