The Sandbanks Hotel, part of the prestigious FJB group of hotels, recently hosted two ‘Great Big Birthday Parties’ for more than 60 children supported through Wave 105’s charity; Cash for Kids.

The children from organisations such as The Butterfly Foundation, Mosaic, Rainbow Trust, The Listening Ear and Coping with Chaos, visited the hotel and were treated to a variety of party games, dancing, mask making and face painting. Some of the older children took part in giant Jenga competitions, table tennis and skittles matches, and after all of the games everyone sat down together to enjoy a Birthday feast. 

Lisa Walsh, FJB entertainment consultant, said: “Many of the children that are supported through Cash for Kids will never experience the fun and enjoyment of a Birthday party, so we came up with the idea of hosting these giant parties for everyone to celebrate all together, no matter what time of the year their actual Birthdays are. It was wonderful to bring smiles to the faces of so many deserving children.”

Gloria Hill, Wave 105 Cash for Kids charity manager, added: “The FJB Group has chosen to support Wave 105 Cash for Kids for the whole of 2014 and we can’t thank them enough. Many of the children that we work with have to grow up so quickly due to the circumstances they find themselves in, so they deserve this happiness.”
