A GROUP of mums from Thurlby got moving to raise money for a good cause.

The friends held an 80s fancy dress disco at Lawrance Park Hall, Thurlby, to raise more than £500 for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The disco was held for nine-year-old Jack Laine-Turner, of Thurlby Primary School, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis.

Group member Odette Wells, 33, from Swallow Hill, Thurlby, said: “It was really really good fun.

“Everyone came in good spirits and dressed up which was great to see. We’ve all seen first hand how it affects Jack and what he has gone through so it’s a really worthwhile cause, and we thank everyone who helped out.

“We’re very happy to have raised so much from just a small event.”

Cystic Fibrosis is one of the UK’s most common life-threatening inherited diseases, caused by a single faulty gene of which there is no cure.
