A country and western evening organised by a charity volunteer has raised hundreds of pounds.

Lorraine Street, who gives her time to St Nicholas Hospice Care’s shop in Brandon, organised the event at the town’s Royal British Legion.

Held last month the night raised £350 for the hospice.

Mrs Street, who has volunteered for five years, said: “Everyone really had a brilliant time and we are so pleased with how it all went. The music was great and everyone had a great time dancing.

“The girls also did brilliantly with organising the raffle and we had so much support.”

The occasion included a fancy dress competition.

She added: “I absolutely love volunteering for the hospice. I started five years ago as I was finding it difficult to find a new job and I needed something to do.

“It’s been five years and I haven’t looked back. I really enjoy it.”
