Her biggest fundraising night of the year, around 150 people enjoyed the glitzy black tie event at The Grand Hotel that featured live music, a raffle and auction following a delicious three course meal.

All funds raised are being split between the Mayor's two chosen charities of the year - A Band of Brothers, which helps young men develop, improve their lives and the communities they live in, and The Old Bank Wellbeing Trust, a charitable organisation that provides professional counselling and psychotherapy services.

The Mayor, Councillor Candy Vaughan, said: "Huge thanks to everyone who supported my Charity Ball and in particular to our event sponsor, Willingdon Park Manor Care Home, for a fabulous night of fun and fundraising.

"It was great to see old friends and new enjoying themselves in aid of two charities that do so much to support the people of Eastbourne."

The Mayor also recently held a quiz night which raised a further £1,000 for her two chosen charities.

Meanwhile, the Mayor is inviting expressions of interest from good causes for her chosen Charity of the Year for 2024/5. Interested charities should directly support people in Eastbourne and be prepared to work with the Mayor on her fundraising efforts.
