Look out for us on Hove Seafront at 2.00pm, opposite the beach hut where we will be collecting fingerprints all day.  Hope to see you there for family fun and pure Fringe indulgence in leaving your mark on the Fringe!

We will be on the Brighton and Hove seafront every weekend in May, creating a giant child’s face from finger prints. Simply donate a £ and leave your mark.  Every penny of your donation goes to charity.  We will be fundraising for 6 local charities that support children by empowering them to lead a fulfilled life.  Currently, these include Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice and Winston’s Wish.  We will be announcing the other four Children’s charities  early next week.  The venue will be one of Brighton and Hove’s colorful beach huts.

The finger prints will be displayed on Sunday 29th May at The Basement, Kensington St, Brighton, so come on down and see what you’ve created to give the thumbs up as a community to getting support to children.

Why not join us and volunteer?  We are looking for individuals to join the team for the events and also to help create it.  Find out more about how to get involved here
