Halloween Activities

During October Half Term 2021, around 100 families joined in with our Halloween activities, which were sent out in the post as a fun and creative way to bring families together.

The activities consisted of a Craft box, put together by Lexy at Made By Me Craft Parties. It included a Frankenstein monster lantern with googly eyes that glow in the dark. We also worked with Kiddy Cook who sent out a Cookie monster baking mix, which allowed the children to create their own unique cookies monsters with candy eyes, and blue icing. Thank you to all the families who joined in. We hope these activities provided a nice break as well as helping to create some fun memories together as a family. If you’re interested in our events for families affected by childhood cancer, you can find out more on our Keeping families together page. We would also like to say a special thank you to the Fairlop Lions Club in Ilford, who helped to fund these activities.

Fun for the children

Brindha, Mum of Rohan told us:
The Halloween crafts were great and much needed as Rohan ended up being in Hospital and it was a nice fun distraction to do them with him. Then great to make the cookies with his brother Reuben at home.

Charlotte, Mum of Isla told us:
I would just like to say thank you so much for the Cookie Monster package. With a rubbish rainy day today, we thought it was a perfect day to make the Cookie Monster biscuits. My 1 year old daughter Isla got diagnosed with infant acute lymphoblastic leukaemia 16 weeks ago when she was 10 months. Her 6-year-old brother Cody was so chuffed to make these for her and it was a great way of involving him. He tried so hard. Thank you so much we had great fun.
