The Mayor of Seaford, Cllr Rodney Reed, launched the Mayor’s Charity initiative upon being elected as Mayor in May 2020. Approximately 35 charities participated, but as a result of the disruption of COVID-19, fundraising opportunities were limited.

Rather than distribute a small amount to all charities by evenly splitting the funds raised, the fund is going to be entered into a prize draw, with the three lucky winners to be drawn by the Mayor at the Support our Seaford Charities event on Martello Fields on Sunday the 5th of September.

Cllr Reed explained: "Seaford Town Council has Mayor's Charity funds from last year that we were unable to distribute because of the social distancing requirements that were in place. 'Support our Seaford Charities' is our first opportunity to publicly distribute this money.

"With so many charities and not for profit organisations booking stalls for the day, a cash draw is our preference because it is the simplest and fairest way to make the money quickly available.

"Adam Chugg, the Town Clerk, will be with me to make the draw at 2.00pm on Sunday the 5th of September. All of the charities and not for profit organisations which have a stall at the event will have a free entry in the draw, with prizes of £250, £150 and £100 which will be a worthwhile top up to the funds their stalls will raise during the day."

The planning and organising group for this event comprises: Martello Rotary; NP&S Lions; Seaford Rotary; The National Coastwatch Institution (Newhaven) and the Seaford Bonfire Society. 

The Support our Seaford Charities event is free to enter. Sunday the 5th of September on the Martello Fields, 10am to 4pm.
