Cheltenham Family Fun Day 2019


Last years event was so successful we decided to book it up again and so Saturday 6th April, over 25 families arrived at Cheltenham racecourse for a fun packed day.

We co-hosted the event with healthcare professionals from Gloucester and Bristol hospitals. Fiona Brown, specialist paediatric rheumatology nurse and Megan Finch created a great display table with all sorts of brilliant gadgets and aids to show what there is available to help children and young people who are struggling with everyday tasks, and Ginny Ward gave a very informative presentation on the importance of exercise with JIA.

Like last year, Dale and his team from All About Fun set up games and table tennis to entertain the children and young people and the table tennis proved very popular and lots of fun was had at the magic selfie mirror!

When they weren’t bashing the button game, the families enjoyed painting Easter eggs and each other’s faces!

It was good to see so many families chatting and sharing stories with each and I enjoyed catching up with parents who I met last year, there were lots of new faces too.

Our next event is at Nell bank in Ilkley, Yorkshire on Saturday 29th June. Please join us, it’s a lovely part of the country and we always have a great time at this outdoor facility.
