Skegness residents and holidaymakers are being invited to help raise funds for a children’s charity by attending a special tea party this summer.
Stagecoach East Midlands will be hosting the Skegness Dream Tea Party at the bus station on Richmond Drive to raise money for Dreams Come True, which helps children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions to fulfill a dream.
The party will be held on 19th August from 10am until 3pm. Families can enjoy face painting, teas, coffees and cakes, magic shows, balloon modeling, music and tombola. In addition, children and adults alike can play ‘Splat the Manager’. Stagecoach East Midlands Operations Manager, Ian Naylor, has bravely volunteered to be pelted with sponges.
Popular character buses, the Skegness Seasiders, will be in service as usual along the seafront so people can attend the party with ease.
The tea party will be a great opportunity to grab Skegness Seasider souvenirs whilst helping to raise money for charity. Party goers can buy storybooks, t-shirts, caps and stationary at the party with all proceeds going to Dreams Come True.
Michelle Hargreaves, Stagecoach East Midlands Managing Director, said: “As a company, we always strive to support local charities and communities so by holding the tea party, people can come along, find out about the work that Dreams Come True do and help raise money for Dreams’ children.
“We have loads of fun games and activities that will be taking place at the tea party and I encourage visitors to join locals and enjoy themselves!”
