Fancy dress fundraisers party on for Eastbourne Mencap


Fundraising friends held a charity fancy dress party and raised more than £1,200 for Eastbourne Mencap.

Langney Sports Club was the venue for the event, one of a number which have been organised by Hazel Kernott and her friends to raise money for a host of charities locally.

Party-goers dressed in 1960s and 70s costumes and Hazel said, “The air was alive with static electricity from the crimplene and bri-nylon psychedelic outfits worn on the dance floor.”

The fundraisers have raised thousands of pounds over the years with their fancy dress events and Hazel said that with help from Barclays Bank, the latest event raised more than £1,200 for Eastbourne Mencap’s appeal to refurbish its care homes in the town.
