The Mayor of Eastbourne is hosting a fundraising event that promises to tantalise the tastebuds in aid of his chosen charities of the year. 

The Mayor’s Charity Cheese and Wine Tasting on Saturday, March 5, at 7pm, features award-winning wine and guidance from Plumpton College experts. 

The Mayor, Councillor Pat Rodohan, said: “This is going to be a fantastic evening exploring delicious cheeses and pairing them with carefully chosen wines under the direction of Plumpton College specialists. 

“If you like cheese, wine and a fun night out then please join us and help raise much-needed money for three good causes that do wonderful work in the local community – Amaze, Community Wise and Holding Space.” 

Amaze helps families with disabled children and young people with special educational needs with information, advice and support.   

Community Wise is a busy community centre in the Motcombe area used by people of all ages and backgrounds for activities ranging from toddler groups to a charity shop.   

Holding Space supports parents, carers, children and families who are struggling with their mental health, providing face-to-face, telephone and online help.   

The event will be held at Community Wise in Ocklynge Road (BN21 1PY).
