Hamworthy-based charity, Harbour Challenge, is thrilled to have received a cheque from Wave 105 Cash for Kids for £5,000. The grant will fund a group of 45 disadvantaged children on a residential trip in July.

Harbour Challenge focuses on getting disabled and disadvantaged children involved with outdoor activities such as mountain biking, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing and climbing, with the aim of promoting self-esteem, cooperation and team work. Harbour Challenge welcomes children from youth groups, scouts, guides, schools and special needs groups to name a few, and also welcomes staff from schools, colleges and universities. The activities and residential trips take place around Poole Harbour and the Purbeck Hills.

Fundraising manager from Harbour Challenge, Paul Thompson, said: “This very generous donation from Wave 105 Cash for Kids will pay for a group of 45 children, aged 10 to 11 from Hamworthy, to take part in a camping trip in the first week of July. The group will be able to have a go at kayaking, canoeing, sailing and windsurfing. They’ll even get to enjoy a motor boating session, all opportunities that they wouldn’t be able to enjoy in everyday life. Huge thanks go to the Cash for Kids team and its charity supporters for raising these vital funds.”

Wave 105 Cash for Kids charity manager, Gloria Hill, added: “It’s wonderful to see how the money raised through our charity is going to towards helping a group of young people partake in positive life experiences. Thank you to our wonderful charity supporters and Wave 105 listeners for enabling us to continue providing grants such as these.”
