On Wednesday 4th August, we hosted a Sunshine Family event for the Chronicle Sunshine Fund. It was a pleasure to be able to play host to this event, especially as it was the first event of this kind in over two years!
What did the Sunshine team say?
It saw team sunshine reunited with some of our families. The whole team have been super excited for this event. We have all missed seeing the families due to the restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic so this was an amazing opporunity to catch up with some familiar faces and even greet some brand new ones!
We were lucky enough to be able to use the fantastic facilities at Better Leisure Trampoline Park on the West Road in Newcastle. Better Leisure have always been big supporters of team sunshine and we are delighted that we got to host our event here! The accessible facilities and top notch soft play meant all the kids had a blast, wether that was dashing about or taking some time to chill in the different areas of the facility.
We have been working closely with the centre manager who has been fabulous at ensuring our children and their families can enjoy the event safely whilst having ample free parking and disabled changing facilities. Better Leisure have excellent Covid-19 secure protocols which meant the families could feel safe knowing the facilities are clean, well looked after and as safe as possible. It's amazing when we work with organisations who share our ethos and go above and beyond to ensure a positive experience for our children and understand their needs.
