AN OVER 55s club will be able to buy new speakers and an mp3 player thanks to a mayor’s donation.

Mayor of Market Deeping, Coun Bob Broughton, chose the Young at Heart Club as one of his charities this year and on Tuesday handed over a cheque for £600 to the group.

The club was formed in 2008 by chairman Trisha Smith, and offers a range of activities including quizzes, cash bingo and sports days.

The group also has themed party afternoons, such as rock and roll and back to the 60s, 50s and 40s.

Mrs Smith said: “We are so grateful for the £600 Bob Broughton handed to us. This donation enables us to buy new microphones and speakers, so everyone can hear what is going on, and an iPod to enable us to have dances and singalongs.”
