We were thrilled to announce the return of our annual Sibling Residential trip this year, to Kingswood Dearne Valley. This trip is for all of our siblings to have a fun time, enjoy being children and make special friendships with other siblings who have been affected by childhood cancer.

They had lots and lots of fun doing everything from zip lining to scrapheap fashion shows, archery to orienteering, abseiling to gathering round a campfire for singalongs and smores!

Today we’d like to say a special thank you to our kind business supporter Slumberdown, for their support in covering the cost of the coach to and from Kingswood, as well as providing all the children with a lovely scented pillow each for the stay and to take home!
