YOUNGSTERS across Scarborough are being invited to dance the night away at a charity disco in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The children’s disco, which has proved a popular event in recent years, is once again being held at Vivaz night club, in Huntriss Row.

As well as music, the event also features a raffle and tombola, and the prize presentation of an Easter themed colouring competition.

Michael Streets, Marie Curie community fundraiser for North and East Yorkshire, said: “Quite often a lot of the events we have to raise money are for adults.

“We thought it would be quite nice to do something the youngsters can get involved in, and give them the change to get to know a bit about the charity and what we do.

“The money we get from the event will go back in the community nurses service, and provide funding for the nurses to care for people in their own homes in and around Scarborough.

“The children’s disco has always been a really popular event, and we would like to thank Paul Murray at Vivaz for letting us use the night club and Dave Marshall for providing the music.”

The disco, open to youngsters under 11 years of age, is being held at Vivaz on Friday, March 18, between 7 and 9pm, with the doors opening at 6.30pm.

All children must be accompanied by an adult, and tickets cost £2.50. Tickets are available from the Marie Curie office in Belle Vue Street, or by calling (01723) 378111.
