Youngsters from the Children With Cancer Fund descended on Knockhatch Adventure Park for a family fun day of boating, animal shows, laser shooting and lots of playing for the children whilst the parents had a chance to chat amongst themselves.
The wind and rain cleared and certainly didn’t dampen the high spirits of the charity’s 130 guests who attended the day which culminated in a barbecue and lots of fluorescent coloured ice-cream.
“It’s days out like this, together with like-minded people going through the same thing that makes us realise we are not on our own” said one of the families.
“CWCF supports children with cancer and their families, not only through their treatment but afterwards when life can be just as hard.”
Chris Downton, from the charity which is based in Polegate, said, “We are really thankful to the public that support us making these days possible because going through cancer can be a lonely place and we know putting these families together is really helpful. Some of the families that have been through treatment tend to help those that are just starting the long journey and that is something no money can ever buy.”
The aim of the Children With Cancer Fund is to raise money and distribute it to causes that are associated with children up to the age of 18 who have had, or are suffering from a form of cancer.
