Raising money for the Sheiling Trust

FJB Hotel’s donates £3,400 to complete the fundraising for a new sensory room at the Sheiling Trust School.

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.

Donating £3,400 was an easy choice for FJB Hotels, this donation meant the Shelling Trust could finally go ahead with their new sensory room. The school supports children with a variety of conditions, including autism, Downs Syndrome, Fragile X and many others. The sensory rooms are vital, providing relaxation as well as stimulation, and the room at the school will be available both in term time and during the school holidays. 

Amanda Cresswell, fundraiser for the trust, says “many of our students suffer from behavioural difficulties as well as medical complications and a new sensory room has immediate benefits to their health, behaviour, and childhood in general.”

By opting to add £1 to your room rate upon check out can really make a difference to a child’s life.
