On Sunday 30th October we held our Annual Halloween party for the families we support. We were delighted that DoubleTree hotel in Islington agreed to host the event for us, and provided volunteers, decorations and food on the day.

The venue was wonderful, with lots of space for the children and young people to play in and take full advantage of the food and treats that were on offer! There was facepainting, with a variety of designs requested- from spiderman to a Frankenstein vampire. Children came in fancy dress and a competition was held to judge the best costume, and families were treated to a buffet lunch.


After lunch, face painting and the fancy dress competition they all settled down to watch Hotel Transylvania, with popcorn and snacks provided by DoubleTree. At the end of the movie both the children and carers were given goody bags by DoubleTree volunteers to take home with them.

We had a brilliant day, feedback from families included that they loved the venue- it was great to go to a new place and be treated, one child proclaimed “this is the best day ever!”

Thank you DoubleTree, we would love to come back! halloween3
