Yesterday the Parent and Toddler group (all 72 of us including older siblings and additional family members) went to Flamingo Land in North Yorkshire as our annual trip. This was a real family effort, as we wanted to make the trip affordable for all – every child over 4 cost the same as an adult, so each entry cost £44 including transport. The group, undaunted by this, have been fund-raising since March and raised a whopping £2,227 through a variety of means. We are grateful for donations towards the trip as well. IN the end, families paid just £10 per person and had a great day out.
The breakdown of income is given below:
- Easter Coffee Morning £430.00
- Easter Raffle £186.00
- Sponsored Walk £300.00
- Sponsored Toddle £575.00
- Donations £283.00
- Snap Tin Raffle £50.00
- Dummy Clips £24.00
- Tea Towels £365.00
- Bottle Bag Sale £14.00
What was so lovely to see was how the children interacted with each other – we really are a big family!
There were rides to go on and places to explore:
There were animals to see, including the eponymous flamingos!
Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny came to visit.
There were a lot of ice-creams eaten (and one dropped…)
All in all, it was a lovely day out. Our thanks to Oakleaf coaches for transporting us and to Flamingo Land for a fun day out.
