The TFI (Thai Farang Initiative) team held an exciting event in the run up to Christmas. With two highly successful music themed evenings under their belts, the team decided to change tack and focus on children by hosting the Jolly Kids Xmas at Jameson’s.
This took place on the afternoon of Sunday the 8th of December at Jameson’s Irish Pub where over 70 kids came along with their parents to enjoy the bouncy castle, free food and drinks for the kids, a ukulele player, kids entertainer Doc Penguin, face painting and of course Santa who gave each child a present.
This event was free, and TFI saw it as a way of giving back to the community.
The kids had a great day out and the parents were able to relax and let the kids do their thing so they could enjoy the all day happy hour drinks and the delicious roast dinners that Jameson’s is famous for.
Kim Fletcher from Jameson’s generously provided all the kids food and drinks for free and gave TFI back 50 percent of all revenue from the sale of roast dinners. This came to 8,500 baht. Another well known face at Jameson’s, Chef Kai-Uwe Klenz, added another 1,500 baht to make it up to 10,000.
Kids from the ATCC are treated to new football kits.
The sponsors for the day were Pattaya Realty Residential & Commercial, The Rivieria, Key Visa, MBMG and assistance from the Party Hire Shop, Doc Penguin, & Thai Party Hire who provided the bouncy castle.
This great day out for the kids with the help of the sponsors enabled TFI to make a profit of 55,000 baht and on Sunday the 14th of December the TFI team handed over football kits to 28 youngsters from the Anti Human Trafficking & Child Abuse Center at Planet Football. The kids were also presented with new training shoes provided by Shaun Houlding who recently did a sponsored trek to the base camp of Mount Everest.
Santa’s corner is popular with all the children.
The kids were given rudimentary training my John Ungi then, after a game of football, the kids were treated to delicious pizzas with the compliments of Nick the Pizza.
