Exciting News: We have secured lottery funding for the Wave charity and are now looking for a full time Youth Work to organize the weekly activities, manage the building and undertake fund raising activities. This is an exciting time for the Wave charity and we expect this role to help shape our future. If you wish to be considered please see further details available here.
Our annual Wave Festival is taking place on July 13th 2024 at Tournaberry Golf Course, Hayling Island so please save the date. We have run the event for the last three years to provide a great day out for families with lots to do and all money raised going to the Wave Charity or other community charities.
Here are a few words from our ambassador Preacher the Storyteller about his role with Wave Charity and the festival.
