A Troll-tastic Fun Day!
Earlier this month, KidsOut sent 43 children on a Fun Day to Everyman Theatre in Leeds to see the hit movie ‘Trolls’! The children all had such a fantastic time, according to the Children and Young People’s Domestic Violence Worker, who told KidsOut:
“Thank you very much for offering this opportunity to our clients. We really enjoyed the movie and I am pretty sure everyone left very satisfied.
The children who attended the showing have never experienced a cinema visit before and this gave them a wonderful experience of being able to see their favourite movie on the big screen, which some had always dreamt of. This session was very accommodating for mums, they didn’t have to pay for refreshments as they were provided. This took the extra pressure off mums as they didn’t have to worry about finances.
The feedback given to me from all clients was very positive, they loved the experience and all of them wanted to pass on their thanks for the wonderful experience and for looking after them so well.
The children were given the opportunity to try something new which they would not have been able to experience should this event not have taken place. Of the families who attended, none of them had any plans to do anything during that particular day which would have meant that their children would have been cooped up inside rather than socialising and trying new things. This event gave the children a welcome distraction from their everyday life and allowed them to experience something fun and different to what they normally would be doing.”
The feedback from some of the mothers from this fun day has been fantastic:
“I just wanted to say thank you very much for organising this as the holidays can be very difficult to keep the children occupied and this was amazing”
“The kids really enjoyed the film and were very happy that they got snacks”
“Thank you for inviting us to see the film. My daughter loves Trolls but was too young to see it at the cinema when it first came out. She loved the environment and enjoyed experiencing it with equally excited children”
“This was a great event for me and my children. We had a lovely day and felt spoilt. Thank you”
“Thank you for bringing us here and for this wonderful experience, I am very grateful”
Thanks to Gordons LLP for hosting the event and providing refreshments.
