Grantham Journal Children’s Fund: Festival of Excitement countdown has begun

There’s still time for families to apply for places at our upcoming Festival of Excitement.

The event, on Saturday, August 20 at the Prince William of Gloucester Barracks, is being organised by the Grantham Journal Children’s Fund and is open to families with a disabled child.

We’ve received lots of applications but there is space for more to enjoy the day, which will include everything from rally car experiences to flypasts.

There will also be fairground rides, inflatables, sensory spaces, dance performances, soft play and more, plus toilet facilities with full disabled access, a tea tent and food stalls.

All activities and facilities are being organised with the needs of disabled youngsters in mind. Entry, activities and food will be free of charge.

We must give thanks to all those businesses and individuals who are giving up their time to be part of the day. Among them are the team at The Melton Building Society, who will be serving free cakes to families. They have also kindly donated £200 to the event.

Meanwhile, the team at Wilmott Dixon will set up gaming stations and also invite youngsters to make their own bird boxes to take home. Buildbase has kindly donated the use of a generator.

Families and disability support groups are asked to request forms and further information by emailing summersizzler@grantham journal.co.uk

We look forward to seeing you there, between 10am and 4pm.
