Guns, roulette and fast cars bring Grantham Disabled Children Society close to £20k target

Charity trustees were both shaken and stirred to learn a James Bond-themed event supported by Grantham’s business community raised almost £4,000 for their campaign to send disabled children and their families to Disneyland Paris.

Although falling shy of a £5,000 target, the substantial amount raised by Grantham Business Club (GBC) means there is just £700 more to go until every place is secured.

It was a brilliant night, absolutely amazing
Micky Stokes

And trustees of Grantham Disabled Children Society (GDCS) are confident they will hit the mark.

Micky Stokes is one of a handful of dedicated fund-raisers who have worked tirelessly to raise the cash needed for September’s four-day trip, which will see 18 families enjoy the thrills of the family theme park.

She said: “By Easter, we’re hoping we’ll have done it, and then we’ll feel amazing.”

Micky was there on Saturday evening to collect the cheque from business club chairman Stuart Pigram, along with fellow trustees Kaz and Nic Smith and Darryl Blair.

She said: “It was a brilliant night, absolutely amazing. GBC has done us proud.”

It was GBC’s events co-ordinator Amber Kitching who organised the charity event on Saturday, at Grantham’s Urban Hotel.

She said: “We have really enjoyed working with the trustees of GDCS and the ball was a great way to end a fantastic year for them. We would like to thank everyone who supported the event on Saturday, it was a fantastic evening.

“We look forward to a new partnership in 2015 with Grantham’s First Responders.”
