On Friday 6th October, 60 Engineering Apprentices, staff (and 3 dogs) set off on our Annual Lyme Park Charity Walk in aid of When you Wish Upon A Star.
We had all been a little worried in the run up to the walk as the weather had not been the best so we thought it was going to be a very cold and wet one! Fortunately the weather brightened especially for us and gave us a gloriously sunny (although a bit muddy) day for the 3rd year running! To our delight, even the resident deer made an appearance for us this year!
Our Apprentices put their best foot forward and ran, splashed and clambered their way through the 4 ½ mile ramble to raise money to help ‘When you wish upon a star’ with the Frozen Christmas themed Winter Wonderland at Center Parcs.
The Winter Wonderland is a fantastic event where the staff from when you wish upon a star take sick & terminally ill children and their families to Center Parcs for a Special Christmas Wish weekend for a well-deserved break. The children have a magical time and get to meet… ‘The Real Santa’ amongst many other characters.
Our annual charity events are something we love to do and our Apprentices get a real sense of helping in the community from them.
A big thank you goes out to all of our apprentices, families, friends, staff & companies who generously support us with these events.
Without your support, these brave children would never get the chance to make these memories that mean so much & that their families can keep forever. Thank you!
Watch out for our next event, The Annual Santa Dash, Friday 8th December 2017.
