On Monday 20th December Cllr Louise Burdett helped Kursaal resident Sylvia Hallett bring some Christmas cheer to 45 children from Kursaal and from across Southend.
A Christmas party was organised by Sylvia Hallett and Cllr Burdett and hosted very generously by Joeleen, Manager of The Royal Hotel, who not only allowed use of the venue for free, but also provided party food.
There was also a special guest appearance from Father Christmas also known as Cllr James Cottis who distributed presents. We would also like to thank George proprietor from the Hope Hotel for his donation and to other businesses in the town who donated, including, Wilkinson’s, Adventure Island and Asda. We would also like to thank residents in the town who donated toys to the party.
A good party was enjoyed by all and most importantly the children enjoyed themselves!
