Charity’s Annual Herm trip brings over 100 smiles


Charity’s Annual Herm trip brings over 100 smiles

More than 100 children aged five to eleven, and their parents/guardians enjoyed a summer evening in Herm last week. The party had a meal at the Mermaid Tavern and were entertained by Island FM’s Mark Trenchard, break-dancer Dave Hyett, face painter Joni Nettleship and Daniel the Donkey.

All of the children were given either a bright yellow or black Smile for Georgie cap, which was sponsored by Guernsey Self Store.

After their meal, everyone made their way to Shell Beach where they danced and played games. A few brave children went for a swim before the party headed to the Mermaid Tavern for a well-earned ice cream before returning to the boat, which was subsidised by Travel Trident. Every child received a party bag and, once back in Guernsey, C T Plus provided a bus to take those who required transport home.

Andre Le Prevost, Georgie’s father, said: “Everyone had a great evening and it is events like this that are the reason we created the charity. We have had some wonderful support and the children have gone home to bed with happy thoughts.”

The Smile for Georgie Foundation would like to thank all of those who generously contributed towards this event and can confirm plans for Herm 2020 are already coming together.
