Our Charity of the Year
In 2014, we are delighted to be helping disadvantaged children by supporting Fun in Action for Children, as our official Charity of the Year.
As a day out enjoyed by many young families, it was important to us to choose a charity dedicated to the welfare of children.
Fun in Action for Children provides a one-to-one befriending service to children from disadvantaged lone parents families in the Brighton
and Hove area of Sussex, transforming children’s
lives through friendship.
The carefully matched befriender spends 3-4 hours per week with their child with the aim of relieving the pressure on families and providing another reliable, caring relationship. The emphasis is not on what they do but on the quality and ease of the relationship they develop.
Since it began in 1999 Fun in Action has set up over 120 befriending relationships. Many of these
friendships have lasted well beyond the two year
minimum period and continue to flourish.
A great deal is planned for the partnership during the course of 2014 including group visits, support and fundraising. Fun in Action for Children will also have an ongoing presence at the Park and we look forward to working closely with them to help support the fantastic work they do.
