Saturday 7 September dawned mild and partly sunny. It was a perfect day for the first MLD Support Association UK Family Fun Day at Wicksteed Park in Kettering. The day was a great success with rides, the little train, a magician/balloon maker, an amazing face painter and plenty of time for all the families to mingle. A great big THANK YOU to the National Lottery Community Fund for giving us a grant to help pay for the day.

“It was lovely meeting up with other families and siblings.”

“I enjoyed meeting the other families while the children had the chance to have some fun.

Nicola Elson, parent

The grounds were open and the venue was big enough for wheelchairs. Having a changing facility was very helpful. Being able to get a cup of tea/coffee whenever I wanted and having food available for a long time was good as it’s tricky to eat and drink within certain time frames. Also interaction between siblings and parents was great! The staff were very helpful and the venue was central so many people could attend.”

Paula Veysey, parent

“I loved meeting all of the families and getting to know the day-to-day things about each of us.

Tina Maii, parent

The event was really well organised. The kids loved the entertainment and so much thought and effort went into their gifts. Loved the beach theme and it was lovely meeting up with all the other families.
