Get Your Skates on to Support Homeless People

Party-goers in Nottingham can do their bit to support homeless people by pulling on a pair skates and dancing the night away.

Skateland Roller Skating Rink in Prospect Place, Lenton, is holding a fun-packed fancy dress roller disco on the evening of Saturday, July 1st in aid of Framework.

The event, which will feature music from the 80s, 90s, 00s, comes at the end of the charity’s annual Do It For Framework Week – seven days of activities to raise vital funds and increase awareness about its work.

Tickets are £6 per adult and £4 for children, with all proceeds going to Framework. Tickets can be purchased at

Framework fundraiser Abigail Mayfield said: “This is a great opportunity to come and have fun in aid of a serious cause. If you’ve skated before (perhaps many years ago) that’s great, but if you haven’t that really doesn’t matter. We’ll have some great music on the night, they’ll be some fun games, and prizes (including two Splendour Tickets) will be given for the best fancy dress outfits.”

Joy Cotton, a skating enthusiast who founded the Skateland last year, added: “Over the last few years we have seen homelessness rise dramatically across our community. Framework is doing some excellent work in support to tackle this and we wanted to support them in any way we could. We hope to see as many people as possible down there on the night.”

Do It For Framework Week runs from Monday, June 26 to Saturday, June 1. Around 30 different events have been planned across the seven days – many of them by businesses and individuals who are supportive of the charity’s work. Events include a pub quiz, football tournament, pony trek, a film screening, baking competition, a skydive, a music and poetry night, and even a sponsored yoga-a-thon. For all event listings:
