Tuesday, 10 September –  180 80s Danceathon (YMCA Romford)

It’s time to dig out those neon legwarmers & sweatbands and join us for an 80s inspired fundraising danceathon!

The music starts at 5pm with all ages and abilities welcome, then at 6.30pm the lights go down and the volume goes up, all the way through to 8pm. 

More information and tickets available here.

May – October 2024 – Sleep Easy 180

Our annual sleep out will look a little different this year, and rather than hosting one central event that limits the number and age of people that can take part, we are inviting local youth organisations to host their own Sleep Easy event instead. Events are not limited to outdoors and can be in a hall or other venue, so long as it’s away from the usual home comforts. The event can take place any time between May and October 2024.
