A trip down memory lane at birthday party raises �310 for Fenland Road Safety Campaign
ROAD safety campaigner Graham Chappell celebrated his 51st birthday with a 70s/80s charity disco - and raising �310 for the Fenland Road Safety Campaign (Charlotte’s Way) fund.
Many of the guests added extra colour to the evening by wearing period costume or fancy dress, and Caroline May was judged to be the winner of the best dressed party goer, dressed as singer Lene Lovich.
The event was held on Saturday at Christchurch Village Hall. Among those attending was Andy Walker, father of the Charlotte Walker, who died aged nine when her mother’s car plunged into the Sixteen Foot Drain.
The Fenland Road Safety Campaign was set up by Mr Chappel following Charlotte’s death.
Entertainment was provided by DJ Les B and a 1970s karaoke session. Young and old also took part in a space hopper challenge.

Mr Chappell said: “It was an amazing evening with everyone joining in the fun and enjoying the party atmosphere.
“To have raised �310 from the event was an incredible bonus and a great boost for the campaign as it awaits the outcome of the ‘joint funding’ bid, recently submitted to Cambridgeshire County Council, for the �11,800 Bedlam Bridge Safety Barrier Scheme, for which the Campaign has offered to pay half the cost.
