“A massive thank you to all who helped us, the sponsors, those who made donations, Wisbech Mayor and top DJ, Ouse Valley Singles Club and everyone who attended and has supported us this year.”

The club gives women a chance to give something back to the community.

Earlier this year chairman Grace Humphrey, explained that she chose Headway as the charity of the year as it has supported her sister since a life changing virus of the brain leaving her with uncontrolled epilepsy.
