This month, the constituency have hosted a successful Family Fun Day in conjunction with Durham Equalities Council. The idea was to promote equality and bring members and their families together for a fun-filled afternoon. Families enjoyed fantastic entertainment from Alpha Glitz, equality craft activities, a visit from police officers and fire fighters, live music from County Durham Socialist Choir and Dave Mckenna aka The Pied Piper as well as many other activities. The free buffet was a hit with all who attended – particularly the pies and cakes! The event raised a total of £237.65 towards CLP funds.
The Family Fun Day was supported by different local businesses and organisations, who donated prizes, held an information stall, delivered entertainment or delivered an equalities workshop. A huge thanks goes to Imogen’s Beautiful Bodies – Body Shop, Megan’s Photography, Tweddle Farm, Alpha Glitz, Durham County Carers, Emma Parker (NUT), Safer Homes, East Durham Trust, Seaham Fire Service, Seaham Police Service, County Durham Socialist Choir, Stand Up 2 Racism, Durham Equalities Council and all of the members of Easington CLP executive committee for supporting and organising the event. May this be the beginning of many more!
