On Friday 5th of May, The Disabilities Trust’s physical disabilities service, Shinewater Court in Eastbourne, held their Gala Fundraising Ball at the York House Hotel on Eastbourne seafront.

Thanks to the generosity of local businesses and guests the event raised £2,800. This was through ticket sales, raffle prize donations and an auction. All proceeds from the event will be used to buy a new minibus for the service users.

Everybody had a wonderful time at the ball:

Abigail said: "I had a wonderful evening - my parents came too."

Glynn said: "We all had a good time - it was a very special night out at a hotel."

It was a fantastic evening! Lovely buffet and I really enjoyed the disco and meeting new people.
