We do a lot of work with Happy Faces, and many of our stage performances are as part of their fundraising shows.
Happy Faces was founded in 2003 with the aim of raising money to help sick, disabled and disadvantaged children across north Wales.
Their many fundraising activities include bucket collections at supermarkets and shopping precincts; jumble sales and car boot sales; sponsored walks and a team in the London Marathon each year. Happy Faces also have a small shop in Rhos on Sea.
Another of their fundraising activities is their cabaret and theatre shows. Taking place all across north Wales, these shows help to raise money for the charity, whilst also providing a good evening’s entertainment.
Every Christmas, Happy Faces organise a party where each child gets to meet Father Christmas and receives a present. Entertainment is provided, as well as a disco and a meal.
Happy Face’s other work includes purchasing items such as touch screen pads, sensory equipment, wheelchairs and computers. They also provide help towards holidays and garden makeovers, as well as taking children on days out to zoos and theme parks. They have purchased several mini buses for local schools.
We’ve been working with Happy Faces since 2009 – our very first public performance was at one of their fundraising shows in Theatre Colwyn. Since then we’ve joined the cast of their shows in Llandudno town hall, and are currently in the middle of our third summer season.
We’re very proud to work with Happy Faces, and are glad that we are able to support them in their fundraising.
