New partnership with Beach Events & Solutions

Posted on

The charity is thrilled to have been chosen as the official charity partner of the country’s leading urban beach specialists.

Beach Events LogoThe seaside has always been at the heart of the charity and can be traced back to our humble beginnings, over 40 years ago. The charity was established after founders Joan and Patrick Laurance were given a short coastal break near Southend-on-Sea in Essex, and it turned out to be an experience they would cherish forever. You can read more on the history of the charity here.

Fast forward 40 years and caravan holidays and trips to the British seaside are still an integral part of our breaks. For many of the children we help, it will be their first time digging their toes in the sand or building a sandcastle.

We love the idea of bringing all the joy of the seaside to places that are perhaps miles away from the nearest beach. So children can enjoy playing with buckets and spades, adults can relax in deckchairs and feel the sand in their toes.

Beach Events.co.uk are the country’s leading temporary and urban beach specialist and have decades of experience creating and constructing beaches for a wide variety of clients.

They hope to incorporate the Family Holiday Association into some of their beach builds during the year and will be encouraging their contacts to support the charity.

John Hawkins, Director of Beach Events says:

“We are delighted to support The Family Holiday Association this year. We firmly believe that no matter what, quality time away with loved ones in an exciting and new environment is critical for families and for children’s development.

We are proud to be able to help in any way we can and are all excited to help struggling families create wonderful memories, enjoying the family time away that we believe everyone deserves.”

The charity are very much looking forward to developing the relationship with Beach Events and working together on some exciting projects for 2019…
