Sheppey Matters hosted a big bash on the green space between the leisure centre and swimming pool in Sheerness on Friday.
A group of 40 children had lunch provided by the Waterfront Cafe and were joined by Peppa Pig and Spiderman and had their pictures taken.
Community chef Mike Spackman was there serving up afternoon tea, Minster resident Tracey Hammond had made a birthday cake, Sheppey FM provided entertainment all day, the Harmony Therapy Trust was there as well as Giggle Wiggles soft play, a bouncy castle and Animal Encounters.
Manager Nigel Martin gave a speech and thanked everyone for their help and support.
The charity was set up by Mike Brown to help people with their health and has grown over the years to now run numerous projects across the Island with more than 60 staff and volunteers on board.
Assistant manager Becky Gebbie said: “It was a massive, massive success.
“Everybody here has just pulled together and made it happen and I would like to say a huge thank you to them and Swale Community Leisure for its help.”
Mr Martin added: “It’s surpassed all we were hoping for.
“It was a fantastic effort all round and I’d like to say a big thank you to all our team and volunteers who made it all possible.”
