A GROUP of ladies brought a great first year to a close with a fundraising get-together.
The Ladybirds group met at Seaton Golf Club and spokesman Ann Dixon said it was “a celebration of what is coming up to the second year of the formation of the Ladybirds in which lots of new friendships have been formed that will last for years to come”. Highlights included a pie and peas supper and entertainment from the Rockaholics. She thanked everyone who had helped raise a lot of money for Macmillan and the Hartlepool & District Hospice. Ann said £840 was raised through ticket sales, a raffle and auction. She said: “Added to this is money raised from a fashion show we held last month and a donation from staff at B&M and makes a total of £1274 which we will be handing over to Hartlepool Hospice very soon.”
