Grantham goes dotty for Children in Need
People from across Grantham and the surrounding villages raised thousands of pounds for BBC Children in Need last week.
Schools, nurseries and businesses dressed up in spotty outfits, baked cakes, played games and held a variety of sponsored events, in a bid to raise as much as they could for the children’s charity.
Steve Healey, a personal trainer at Belton Woods, raised £158 by taking guesses for how many burpees he could perform in one hour.
He managed 869, averaging 14.2 burpees per minute.
The owner of the winning guess received a luxury spa treatment and a personal training session.
Great Gonerby Post Office hosted its seventh cake stall and broke its fund-raising total record.
A spokesperson said: “We were overwhelmed with the generosity of people baking and supporting us.
“We raised our record of £1,377, taking our total to over £6,500. I don’t think we have ever seen so many delicious cakes. Thank you to everybody who baked.”
