Amaze is one of the 3 lucky charities of the current Mayor of Eastbourne Councillor Pat Rodohan. Amaze supports families with disabled children and young people in Sussex.

Young people with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) from our Amazing Futures Project have been gaining skills through the partnership with the Mayor. They have organised a fundraising event to benefit all the Mayor’s charities 2021/22.

The SEND friendly Neon Disco is for young people aged 14-25. It will be held on Friday 25th February, 7-9pm at the Tennis Centre Hardwick Suite, Lawn Tennis Centre, Eastbourne. Tickets are £7, which includes a glow stick and optional face paint. Tickets are available through eventbrite or in person, at Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre. Poster attached. Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/send-friendly-neon-disco-in-aid-of-the-mayors-charities-tickets-183424687177

We hope this Disco will attract a lot of young people and give them a much needed opportunity to let their hair down and have some fun. It is especially important after the pandemic as we know many young people with SEND faced increased feelings of anxiety and loneliness with fewer places to go where they feel safe.

Please share details of our event far and wide to help us reach more young people. Thank you.
