THOUSANDS of pounds were raised at a Banquet and Boogie Night held by Eastbourne’s mayor Carolyn Heaps.

More than 200 people attended the event in the Ocean Suite on Eastbourne Pier in aid of her two charities for young people, Eastbourne and Wealden YMCA and Eastbourne Young Carers.

Guests enjoyed a three-course meal and live music from the Teenage Crooner and Champagne SuperNova.
