A number of sporting organisations played a part in the event, held at the South Kesteven Sports. Among them were Lincoln City Football Club, Lincolnshire County Cricket Club, English Netball and Grantham Tennis Club.

Sue, who was crowned Local Hero in the Journal’s 2012 Grantham is Great Awards, put on the event as part of her work in providing respite out of the home for vulnerable people at The Meres Leisure Centre, where she is swimschool principal.
