The Vale O’Lune Young Farmers held their 70th annual dinner dance at Morecambe FC’s Globe Arena.

The dance, which invited past and present members to celebrate, included a three course meal and talk from guest speaker, Countryfile presenter Tom Heaps. A raffle and auction raised £5,500 in memory of Elizabeth Mason, a former member of Vale O’Lune. The proceeds will go toward Crohn’s and Colitus UK, Breast Cancer Care and St. John’s Hospice.

Hannah Atkinson, chairman of the club, said: ‘It was a fantastic evening and just great to get everyone together. Everyone has a good evening, and although we were meant to leave at 1am, no-one left until at least 2am!’
