While we were inside, the childcare took the children outside for fun, games and plenty of fresh air.

Lots of fun was had seeing all of the different animals on the farm.

At the end we gave the children their gifts. Alphie Bear went down very well with all of the children. Alphie Bear has been a tradition of our for 9 years.

Cai Bull raised £720 for our charity by shaving his head 1 week before hand.

We presented Cai a special certificate as well as his Alphie Bear.
Such an inspirational young man.
