35th Annual Outing – Wed 29th July 2020

I am pleased to announce the 35th Annual outing for children in care did get the green light to go ahead and our annual trip to Southport Pleasureland took place on Wed 29th July 2020.

Despite having to operate within very stringent COVID-19 GUIDELINES, a great day was had by all for the 35th Consecutive year.

A VERY BIG THANKS to all our Sponsors and Supporters on this day, without whom this day would not have been able to happen
