Vintage Fair helps raise thousands for local hospice

A recent Vintage Spectacular pulled in residents from across North Lincolnshire with a passion for fashion, raising over £4,330 for a local hospice.

Vintage enthusiasts dressed up in their finest outfits to enjoy music from the thirties, forties and fifties at Lindsey Lodge Hospice’s annual Vintage Spectacular in Scunthorpe, which showcased vintage stalls, a Blitz Café and dinner and dancing into the evening.

“Hundreds of people visit our event every year, which really has become one of the major events on the vintage lover’s calendar,” said Jenny Baynham, Senior Manager of Marketing and Income Generation at Lindsey Lodge Hospice.

“The mixture of live music, dancing and such a variety of vintage stalls selling clothes, furniture and accessories, as well as a Vintage Hairdresser means there’s a real buzz all day long, and when we clear the stalls away for our evening supper and dance, the place really does come alive – it’s always a sell-out event.”

The event raises much needed funds for the hospice, which is run as an independent charity to provide free of charge, specialist care to North Lincolnshire people with any progressive life-limiting illness and supports their family and carers during illness and into bereavement.

Jenny added: “We’re a local charity, serving our local community, and every penny raised at this event will go towards ensuring we continue to provide the best possible hospice care now and in the future, so we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to support us, and we hope to see them all again next year.”
