As if by magic, we popped up (with our millions of bags) at Q Leisure in Albourne last Friday to do our messy bit to raise money for *Global's Make Some Noise charity. We were honoured and excited to be part of Heart FM Sussex's Family Festival in a Day, organised and hosted by Heart's dynamic breakfast show trio: Jack the lad, Nicola and Tom.
The event (the first of its kind in Sussex), was a huge success from start to finish - big applause to the show's producer for ordering in stunning weather!
There were inflatables galore, a tea cup ride, an assault course (with bling medals - very significant so said my boys!), entertainers, magicians and a host of amazing activities for intrepid over 8s, from axe throwing to go-karting to inflatables for big kids and of course US - it was a fabulous day for everyone! (Entry for under 8s, by the way, was FREE.)
We were entertained by Jack and Tom's fabulous band 'jukebox live' which made packing up a WHOLE lot easier and we met some lovely families who embraced our mini beast foam, sweet smelling gloop and cereal small world whole-heartedly! As you can see from the images, everyone wanted a piece of the face paint action. The glitter came out full throttle - we had tigers, zombies, flower fairies, pirates and a good few Batmen to boot. And all for a wonderful cause!
*Please do check out Global's 'Make Some Noise' - they act as an umbrella charity for lots of local charities - many of whom hold special significance for the people of Sussex.
