Wave 105’s evening presenter, Andy Jackson, ‘let battle commence’ at Adventure Wonderland in Bournemouth, when he launched the family park’s Battle Boats water ride. To celebrate the ride launch, Adventure Wonderland gave a host of complimentary tickets to Wave 105’s charity; Cash for Kids.

The Cash for Kids team invited children from Community First New Forest Young Carers Service and Mosaic to make the most of the tickets and have a ride on the Battle Boats. The children also got to enjoy the 30 other rides and attractions in the park, before being treated to a magical tea party with Alice and the Mad Hatter.

Russell Lucas–Rowe, Adventure Wonderland’s managing director, commented: “We have a close relationship with Wave 105 and we were delighted to be able to help the Cash for Kids charity. We provided what I think would have been a great day out for some very deserving local children.”

Wave 105’s evening presenter, Andy Jackson added: “I was thrilled to launch the Battle Boats ride. The team at Adventure Wonderland were extremely generous allowing us to treat some of the wonderful children we support through Wave 105’s Cash for Kids. They all had such a fantastic time and were pleased to experience the ride.”

The New Forest Young Carer Service currently works with almost 200 Young Carers and their families across the New Forest providing support, advice and activities. It is part of Community First New Forest, a charity which seeks to improve the quality of life for people and communities living in the New Forest District and its surrounding districts, by providing support and advice, helping people to volunteer and delivering local services to help people with their needs. The charity supports voluntary and community groups, older people, those with disabilities, children, young people and families. 

Mosaic is a Dorset wide charity offering a pathway of support to bereaved children, young people and their families by providing individual, family and group support.  Mosaic also helps young people who are facing the death of a loved one.  Every child receiving Mosaic’s support is invited to attend a residential camp weekend where they can meet others, share their experiences and remember their special person who has died.
