Variety, the Children’s Charity of Jersey was delighted to be able to take 150 children to the Battle of Flowers funfair, thanks to James Cole and his staff, who gave of their time for free to provide exclusive access on Tuesday, 2nd August.
This is a very special event for the youngsters who are either disabled or disadvantaged as the funfair is closed to the public, so the children have the venue completely to themselves with no loud music or flashing lights. The excitement on the youngsters’ faces is wonderful as it really is a treat as many of these children wouldn’t be able to come to the funfair because of the crowds and noise.
An afternoon of fun was followed by a light lunch provided by Variety.
Fiona Brennan, Manager at Brighter Futures said: “Brighter Futures would like to thank Variety for supporting some of our families with the fair tickets. The feedback has been so lovely. Often many of them haven’t ever been able to take their children/child along to the fair. One family have said the relief of being able to take their child after being asked and asked and not being able to do it felt so special.”
