“Thank you SO much for the amazing Easter Tea Party. We had the most amazing time, meeting all the animals and taking part in all the different activities. The first thing my daughter wanted to do when she woke up this morning was put her fairy wings back on, and she was excited to explain to the nurse taking her obs why she was quite so glittery!”
What a wonderful Easter Tea Party we had this week at the beautiful Riding House Café in Bloomsbury. We were joined by 52 children, young people, their siblings and family members and enjoyed a gorgeous afternoon of Easter fun including easter themed arts and crafts, fairies, magic, face painting, an easter egg hunt and more!
Our friends from All About Anna’s Animals added to the Spring feel by bringing some of their gorgeous animals for everyone to meet, including hedgehogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and the biggest hit of the day, the tortoise.
Each year, the Spread a Smile team organises a variety of outings and events for seriously ill children and their families, from our Summer party to afternoon teas, theatre trips, and much more.
These outings bring moments of respite, joyful experiences and enduring memories at the most challenging of times.
“Thank you ALL for the most amazing Easter party! We had the BEST time. I think my youngest hasn’t stopped buzzing with joy and all the fun and loved the animals she got to cuddle. (I did too!) My eldest who has been in hospital for two months wasn’t able to interact but I’m sire he benefited from it all too as it was sensory input from outside his room. I’m just so glad we got to attend because he was meant to have brain surgery last Thursday and have been moved to next week and if it had gone ahead we’d have missed this lovely day. So a huge thanks to all involved.” Amy, Parent
