Families enjoy a day at the Great British seaside

20 August 2018
Families supported by Demelza enjoyed theme park rides, rock pooling and crazy golf when they got together to enjoy a fun day out.
 
The event, organised by Demelza’s Family Support Team, involved 23 families and even a late afternoon rain shower did nothing to dampen spirits, with a fun time had by all.
 
The day started on the beach with buckets, spades and sandcastles with the beach made accessible to children with limited mobility thanks to all terrain wheelchairs provided by Beach Within Reach. There was a beach safari and rock pooling thanks to help from the Thanet Coast Project.
 
There was further support from the local community with Dreamland, Kiddes Corner and Strokes Adventure Golf all throwing their doors open for free, as well as extra help for families thanks to a group of Demelza volunteers.
 
Zoe Workman, Demelza Family Support Worker, said: “It was a lovely day out for our families. I’d like to thank everyone who supported the day. Being able to provide opportunities for families to meet others who are experiencing similar circumstances and create precious memories together made the whole day so worthwhile.”
