To celebrate Children’s Hospice Week (21-27 May) Disney has organised magical events in four children’s hospices across the UK. The events will offer families of seriously ill children a distinct Disney experience by bringing beloved Disney characters and stories into the children’s hospices giving families the chance to spend special time together.
Each Disney event has been planned to create special family moments that can be shared and highlight Disney’s commitment to support Together for Short Lives initiatives as one of their new strategic partners.The first two events took place last Sunday (20 May) at Acorns in Worcester, and Robin House in Balloch, and there are two more events this week at at Chestnut Tree House in Arundel and Naomi House and Jack’s Place in Winchester. Watch this lovely video to see what happened when the Incredibles came to Acorns.
“Disney UK are proud to be supporting Children’s Hospice Week as part of our wider social purpose programme,” says Sara Hanson, Director – Charitable Programmes at Disney UK. “By working with Together for Short Lives and children’s hospices we can create #MomentsthatMatter for children and those closest to them when they need it the most; helping to build emotional resilience through positive shared social experiences.”
