NEWHAVEN MAYOR'S CHARITY BIRTHDAY BASH
February 28 2012.
The Mayor of Newhaven, Steve Saunders, celebrated his 50th Birthday last week with a Charity Bash at Seaford Constitutional Club on Saturday 25th February.
Almost 100 guests included The High Sheriff, Chairs of East Sussex County Council and Lewes District Council, Mayor of Seaford, Deputy Mayor of Peacehaven, members of local community groups and societies, representatives from his three chosen charities, (Coastwatch; VISTA; and Newhaven Football Club - Youth Section), along with family and friends.
Entertainment was provided by The Maestro Players and the Newhaven and Seaford Sea Cadets waited on tables and assisted throughout the evening.
Profits from the sale of tickets, a raffle and an auction of items from local donors such as Sainsbury's, the Lifeboat Institution, Captain's Table, Seaford and Peacehaven Golf Clubs, Wave Leisure, Eastbourne Miniature Railway, Harveys and Drusillas, along with big names like Arsenal and Chelsea Football Clubs, the Grand Hotel and Eastbourne Theatres meant that over £1700 was raised on the night.
Steve would like to thank the staff at the Club and everyone that came along and contributed to the evening, making it such a great success.
