The charity lunch and summer fayre runs from 11am to 4.30pm and includes summer buffet, champagne and Pimms bar, a raffle and tombola. The summer fayre will see crafts and gifts available with entertainment from Lincoln Noel.

People can pack up a picnic and be entertained by live music, disco and an auction of promises at the picnic ball which runs from 7.30pm to 1am.

Jenny Dicks, who is organising the event, said: “We held an event last year and we managed to raise thousands for two very worthy causes.We would like to sell all the tickets and raise a similar amount, if not more, this year.”
