A dance night has raised £2,275 to help a Grantham man who has Alzheimer’s and his family.

The event at Grantham College raised the money for the family of Noel Wallis who has been involved on the music scene for many years. He is a former road manager for Eddie Cochrane. The evening featured well-known acts Vince Eager, Trevor Leeson, Dave Knight, Tarry Carey and new band Steve and the Stereos who all gave their time for free.

Ticket sales raised £1,850 and there was £225 from the table pyramids and a £200 donation from Mick Eldred from the fire service.

Organiser Malcolm Broughton thanked everyone who helped to make the eveing a success. Malcolm said: “My thanks also go to Zenda Dempster and family for the table decorations and the sixties posters and John and Andy for running the door. The support was overwhelming.”

There will be a Halloween Dance with Terry Carey, Sharna and The Buddies on October 29 at the college.
