A 1940s themed dinner and dance has raised £3,000 for a charity which helps homeless people in Wisbech.

More than 120 people danced the night away in the Queen Mary Centre, in Wisbech, to raise money for the Luminus Ferry Project.

The event, held in September, was organised to mark the 70th anniversary since the end of the Second World War.

Gifford and Linda Ekins entertained the audience.

Sponsors of the event were: Anglian Water, Cooks Catering and the Round Table.

Local groups from LEADA and the National Citizen Service also gave up their time to help with the event.

Keith Smith, Luminus Ferry Project Director, said “I was delighted with the evening, and the money raised will help us to continue to provide the life changing support given to homeless people in Fenland. The total amount raised is enough to give over 400 nights of sheltered accommodation to those in need.”
