A step back in time to the Swinging Sixties has helped deliver a major funding boost for Weston Hospicecare.
An All Sixties Night held at Weston Football Club saw more than 170 revellers – many of whom donned 1960s costumes – enjoy the best of the decade’s music.
Many danced the night away while enjoying performances by 1960s tribute band The Berries and Chrystal Bliss, a female vocalist from Worle.
People were also able to try to win a wide range of enticing prizes in a raffle of items donated by local businesses.
The event was organised by Worle man David Kingsbury, and succeeded in raising £2,124 for the hospice.
That brings the total raised by the event – which was run for the fourth time, but the first since 2016 – to more than £6,500, all of which has been donated to Weston Hospicecare.
David said: “More than 170 people attended the event and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
“The event was generously sponsored by Rachel J Homes Estate Agents in Worle, Davan Caravans in St Georges, Mendip Conservatories in Congesbury, All The Twos Taxi Company and Trevor Smith Flooring And Carpets, both of Weston.
“I could not have done the event without the support of these sponsors and all those local and national companies who provided excellent raffle prizes.”
Weston Hospicecare community fundraiser Sue Harding thanked David for his dedicated fundraising on the charity’s behalf.
She said: “The All Sixties Nights David has organised have all been a lot of fun, and a big success, and we are thrilled to have received such a generous donation.
“Thank you to David, and everyone else who helped run the event or simply went along and enjoyed themselves – your support means a lot to us all.”
