Set in a carnival atmosphere immediately before the Jersey Battle of Flowers, the Jersey Seaside Festival provided a whole day of fun and, even though it wasn't forecast, sun!
We were thrilled to have the company of the recently crowned king of spin Braden Holmes. Only 3 weeks before, Braden, 10 years old, beat Yo-Yo masters three times his senior to win the British Yo-Yo Association title. Braden spent time showcasing his skill and teaching youngsters, and the Earsay committee, how to Yo-Yo like a pro.
Our fundraising and awareness was further helped by Miss Junior Battle of Flowers, Jessica Burby, and the Jersey Photo Booth.
Earsay Chairman; Mark Burby commented, “We had a great day and with the support of Braden, Jessica and Jersey Photo Booth I hope that we have made people aware that we're a young, fun and fresh society in touch with its target audience. We urge anyone with hearing impairment to get in touch and come to our events. And of course if there are any corporate sponsors looking to support a local charity then we'd love to hear from them too"
