Craig Stanley, from Worksop, is hosting a children’s Disney-themed disco to raise money for The Oasis Centre’s respite services for children.

With the help of his daughter, Carley, the children’s entertainer and magician will be hosting the free event on May 21 from 1pm to 2.30pm at Manton Sports Centre.

Craig, aged 37, will be providing his own entertainment, alongside hit Disney tunes, cardboard cut-outs of childrens’ favourite characters, candy floss, and a huge raffle.

Daughter Carley helps her dad at every public performance.

Companies have donated prizes for the £2.50-a-go raffle, including a £20 voucher for children’s play centre Tiny Town, two tickets for Savoy Cinema and a shoot worth £40 with Worksop photographer Trevor Gibbons .

One lucky winner will get a private video message from former Gogglebox stars Dave and Shirley.

All proceeds will be going to Oasis’ ‘treasured kids days’, which provide one-to-one respite care for children with disabilities, special needs or behavioural problems.

Children aged from five to 18 years who have these kinds of needs can go to the Oasis Centre and gardens for a day of fun and activities in a safe environment.

Craig Stanley was invited by Worksop Business Forum to entertain at the Worksop Christmas lights switch-on event in 2021.

Steve Williams, Oasis Centre manager and church pastor, said: “I am delighted to hear that Craig is putting on this lovely fun event for children to raise funding for our Treasured Kids respite care programme in Worksop.

"I hope the children have a wonderful event and also know that they are helping our special children and young people at the same time.

"Whether children are playing on the Pirate ship playground, or in the sensory room or making biscuits or painting pottery or just enjoying music there is something for everyone of them.

"This project aims to give children a lovely day with new opportunities but also their parents and families a much needed few hours to relax and do something for themselves.

“Thanks to Craig and his efforts they will have a little more fun and extra provision; these treasured kids deserve to had to an opportunity like this.”
