Share this article

There was plenty of wartime spirit on show at a 1940s fundraiser.

The Yanks are Coming event took place at the Blitz tearoom in Kettering at the weekend, and guests dressed in period costume helped raise almost £400 for Help for Heroes.

The performers were Susan Valliant Speer and her trio, Luna Nightingale and Pete Wayre.

Tearoom owner Allan Fosbrook said: “The rain came down just as we started but it helped in the sense that everyone huddled together under the marquee in a brilliant wartime spirit attitude.”
