Stories, dancing and fun were the order of the day for 24 very excited children from Linwood Special Needs School in Bournemouth when they visited Adventure Wonderland at Parley.

The trip, organised by Variety Wessex, included entertainment from The Mad Hatter and a visit to ‘Wild Thing’, an indoor Aztec themed play centre with slides and climbing frames suitable for all ages and abilities. The children were accompanied by teachers, carers, parents and Variety representatives Judy Hiscoke and Jenny Davies.

Frances Cornelius, chair of Variety Wessex, said: “Thank you everyone who donates money to help us ensure that these wonderful children have experiences to remember and all of you who helped on the day.”
