Blackpool

Posted on: Wednesday 27th July 2022

First and foremost we want to say a huge thank you to the whole Coral Island team for their immense support in 2021, and rolling into 2022.

Following a meeting in 2021 - we were blessed that Coral Island chose to work with Home-Start Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre.

Initially Coral Island sponsored four local families and donated £6,000.00 - Thank you.

This made an immense difference at a time where we are seeing more families needing our support. Following Covid, we have seen an increase in the demand for services such as ours - mental health and isolation are a core element of what we are seeing as well as financial worries. Our Volunteers spend time with families, in their home and work through their worries and concerns - we aim to empower our families to address their circumstances and work them to find solutions.

Our experience of working with Coral Island then turned to so much fun - we were able to put the 'fun' back into fundraising and we held a fantastic collection day where a team of volunteers were able to 'meet and greet' at the entrance points and fundraise - this included the kind donation of keyrings and chocolates for everyone that donated and we raised £681.62 - raising awareness as well as funds. The team were blown away by the support on the day as well from such a friendly and welcoming team of Coral Island staff, and Coral Island went even further by providing lunch for the team as well as drinks through the day - Thank you. 

December saw our biggest event of 2021 when Coral Island opened the doors of the Buccaneer for our 007 - Licence to Party event! 

This turned the bright lights of Coral Island into a stunning backdrop for a Black Tie dinner event and it was exceptional.

Every attendee had such an amazing evening and the feedback blew us away - from the venue through to the food, the staff, the prizes and the generosity of Coral Island once again - Thank you.

Everyone went home with a huge smile, fantastic memories and a question of - are you doing this again next year?

Once again, the kindness shown by the team was something that we haven't experienced before and in sponsoring the whole evening - this allowed our fundraising for this night alone to be £6,600.19 and awareness of the fantastic facilities at Coral Island and the service the Home-Start provide.

But, on behalf of Home-Start Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre I want to say a heartfelt thank you - I feel blessed to have such a fabulous relationship with an iconic venue in Blackpool!
