A pub landlady who challenged herself to get fit has also raised money for the Butterfly Hospice Trust.

Julie Salmon, from the Hammer and Pincers Inn at Wyberton, has raised more than £450 for the charity.

Earlier this year Julie was unable to make a parachute jump due to ill health and decided instead to complete a 20 mile bike ride on a static cycle.

She successfully completed her challenge at the Gifts, Glamour and Glad Rags fundraiser recently held at the Princess Royal Sports Arena.

Julie said: “I would like to say a big thank you to all the people who supported me and the Butterfly Hospice. It is very much appreciated.”

Jenny Piper, one of the organisers of the event, said: “We are so proud of Julie, who supports the hospice in many ways at the Hammer and Pincers. The evening itself was a great success with 30 stands and plenty of free samples and free hair and beauty advice.

“Altogether we raised £1,000 and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves with many people asking when we shall be organising the next Gifts, Glamour and Glad Rags evening. It’s in the pipeline.”

The Butterfly Hospice, based in Rowan Way, Boston, is now open offering a number of services – with the ultimate aim of providing in-patient care in the future.
