Join us for a FREE fun-filled day at Alton Towers!

On 5th October, we hosted a brand new day out for children affected by cancer and their families, where we were joined by over 200 guests. Guests enjoyed unlimited access to the rides in one of the UK’s top theme parks with the added bonus of having fast track wristbands, meaning they were able to beat the queues and hop straight onto the rides. Families sparked their adrenaline on rides such as Wicker Man and Galactica, and younger children explored CBeebies Land, which was bursting with music, stories and adventure. Our Alton Towers Adventure took place during ScareFest, Alton Towers’ spooktacular Halloween event. Families embraced the theme in their wonderfully scary costumes, and our fantastic face painters were on hand to help transform them.

All families joined us for lunch in The Hospitality Suite, where they were entertained by exciting magic and balloon models. This was one of the first events we have hosted in this area of the UK, so it was fantastic to see so many new faces. It also gave families the opportunity to meet other families who have been through similar experiences to them. Thank you to all who joined us and helped to make it a truly special day out!
