With the help of all our staff and generous guests, we’ve helped make a difference to the lives of many young people in our local area through Cash For Kids, supported by local radio station Wave 105. In 2015 we raised £22,000 and here’s one of the charities we’ve helped in 2016.
FJB Hotels donated £3,000 to the Big Little Theatre School, based in Bournemouth and Ringwood, to provide ten under privileged young people with free access to attend acting classes for a year.
The school provides a fun yet professional environment for children to go and escape their everyday life. The teachers (professional actors themselves) use clever tuition methods to improve their confidence and self esteem, as well as learning new skills.
Michelle Guy, Principle of The Big Little Theatre, says “the young people who attend the school regularly benefit from being part of a team, and learn the value of commitment and working hard. The theatre’s ethos is to enable personal excellence through performance in a professional and nurturing environment, whatever a child’s ability or background. Big Little Theatre often becomes a second home and an escape from their day-to-day life.”
By opting to add £1 to your room rate upon check out can really make a difference to a child’s life.
