£7k for Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial from golf day
Thousands of pounds has already been raised towards building a memorial for Lincolnshire's airmen and women.
A golf day raised more than £7,000 to help build the Lincolnshire Bomber Command Memorial and an 'interpretation centre' that will sit alongside it.
The fundraising day, which was held at Hovenden Park golf course and organised by QV Foods, saw a flypast from a Spitfire.
The money raised will now go towards a funding pot to help create the 50m high memorial, called the Spire of Names.

When the designs were chosen in May, the design brief for the memorial was understood to have been between £500,000 and £600,000.
The Spire will celebrate those from Lincolnshire's air bases that gave their lives during the Second World War.
The memorial will be formed using over 25,600 names from the Rolls of Honour held in Lincoln Cathedral.
Its interpretation centre will also pay tribute to international members of the Bomber Command, and almost 30,000 aircrew who flew for them from outside of the county.
Planners hope it will be built at Canwick Hill, subject to planning permission. Peace gardens are also planned as part of the memorial.
