Make The Children Smile Event 2011, by Heather Brown, Special Events Manager
On Saturday we welcomed 15 children and their parents to Rainbow House for a wonderful afternoon of games, magic and party food.
The families had all stayed at either our Rainbow or Guilford Street ‘Homes from Home’ whilst the children were receiving treatement at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
It was lovely to welcome them back for a fun packed few hours and to see them all laughing and joining in with the fantastic entertainer.
After some great games were played, everyone went down to the kitchen for party food where the kids enjoyed putting on a variety of hats, wigs and glasses.
Once the food had been gobbled up, it was back upstairs for the magic show which the children all loved. A particular highlight was the appearance of Mr Nibbles the bunny rabbit who totally stole the show!
The children all left with a pressie and a cupcake which were baked and donated by the lovely Lily Vanilli.
A huge thank you to the lovely Steph Docherty and Caroline Owen who donated this special afternoon to us. It was great to see them on the day and show them what The Sick Children’s Trust does.
