In celebration of the national fundraising scheme Tickets2Wishes, Flamingo Amusements, the amusement park at Hastings Seafront, hosted a VIP fun day with local families who have been granted a wish by children’s charity, Rays of Sunshine.
Amber Rudd, MP for Hastings and Rye, attended the event.
Tickets2Wishes is run by bacta, the UK’s trade association for the amusements industry.
Families who have been supported by Rays of Sunshine enjoyed a day out at Flamingo Amusements. A cheque from the funds raised by all Luxury Leisure Talarius seaside businesses across the country so far in 2019, was presented to the charity.
By participating in the Tickets2Wishes national scheme, those visiting Flamingo Amusements and many other locations around the country, can donate any leftover prize tickets to Rays of Sunshine.
The tickets are then used to brighten the lives of seriously ill children across the UK by granting wishes and providing ongoing support within hospitals.
Amber Rudd commented on the event:
“It was a real pleasure to be given the opportunity to present a cheque for £10,000 at Flamingo Amusements’ fun day hosted jointly by Bacta, the trade association for the amusement industry, and Rays of Sunshine. It’s fantastic to know that these funds will help to grant the wishes of children with terminal or life-limiting conditions in their Tickets2Wishes project.”
