Our Charity of the Year
This year we are supporting Children with Cancer Fund
In 2019, we are delighted to be supporting Children with Cancer Fund (CWCF) as our official Charity of the Year!
As a day out enjoyed by many young families, it was important for us to choose a charity dedicated to the welfare of children and young people.
CWCF was formed in July 1998 by a small group of family and friends with the main thought being to enable the children and families of the children with cancer, to have a quality of life that we would hope to have ourselves.
Most of the time it means giving them treats or buying them something that they have missed out on normally due to the fact that their money has been spent fighting the illness or burning up petrol going to and fro to the hospital for treatment.
CWCF also runs exciting events to give families going through cancer the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation. Some of our events include trips to Knockhatch Adventure Park, Pottery Painting Sessions, Go-Karting, Urban Jump and Family Trips to the Isle of Wight, to name just a few.
Children with Cancer Fund is now 20 years old, and has granted hundreds of wishes and held many family events. CWCF now also owns a couple of caravans and organises family trips to Butlins/Bournemouth, to give families some time away from the gruelling reality of cancer treatment.
How you can help
You can help us support the Children with Cancer Fund by adopting our lovable sloth, Gordon. You will not only contribute towards the upkeep of our animals at the Park but 20% of the proceeds from each adoption of Gordon will be donated to the charity.
