Fundraising for charities close to the hearts of two families took place in Newtoft at the weekend.

The three day event, which included live music on Friday night by local band The Manipulators, a family fun day and disco on Saturday at Newtoft Social Club and a number of football matches throughout the weekend, was organised to raise money 
for cancer charity Clic Sargent and Wickenby based Flights for Life, which gives seriously ill children the chance to go flying.

The event was held in memory of Market Rasen teenager Alice Rice, who lost her battle with cancer two years ago, and Sophie Brockman, who is in remission at the age of five having already undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy to defeat the disease twice.

Among the entertainment was a football match played by Lincoln Griffins Whites, the team Alice, a big fan of the game, played for.

The event was organised by Newtoft residents Lisa Westwick and Joanne Bunn, who, with the help of Adam Sturman sourced charity raffle prizes from businesses throughout Lincolnshire, including many in Market Rasen.
