Sir William Robertson students go to the prom at Belton Woods Hotel thanks to the VW Club.

A group of Volkswagen enthusiasts came to the rescue when the limo taking seven students to their prom fell through.

Mum Diane Harris lost more than £400 when the company hiring out the tank limo went bust.

It looked as if Year 11 students Stanley Harris, Kieran Wilson, Alex Morrison-Brown, Tom Harriman, Tom Stammers, Baylee Peck and Alex Carmen would be left stranded.

But then friends suggested Diane should ask for help through Facebook.

Diane, Stanley’s mother, said: “Within minutes we had a huge response and were totally overwhelmed with the help that people were offering or suggesting.”

Members of Grantham VW Club got in touch with Diane.

She said: “In the end, Debbie Rimmington, Paul King, Alex Johnson and Alex Howes turned up with two VW cars and two VW campervans; Debbie with the VW Camper 1977, Paul with the VW Golf Mk4, Alex with the VW Golf Mk5 and Alex with the VW Camper split screen.

“We all, the lads, myself and Glen Wilson, would just like to say a huge thank you for helping them make 
an amazing trip to their prom.”

She added: “They really enjoyed themselves. It was a great night.”
