Last month, our UpsnDowns Summer Social 2021 took place at Wicksteed Park, Kettering, home to our annual UpsnDowns Charity Dinner.

Lots of families, including some new faces, joined in the fun at Wicksteed. It has been a very long time since we were able to get together face to face, and we certainly made the most of it.

Families met up at the park and enjoyed a picnic together, followed by an hour of crazy bubble-mania with our wonderful drama teacher, Karen Harvey. The children loved it as you can see from the photos!

Everyone was issued with park bands to enable them to enjoy the rides and the animals, if they wanted too.

Despite the weather being slightly chilly (typical August), everyone had a brilliant time. All children left with a goody bag containing a teddy, a hat, a fidget popper, biscuits, and sweets.

Thanks goes to Donna McAvoy and Karen Smith for organising it all.

Special thanks go to Kim Good, Kinga Waksmundska and Louisa Digby who all trekked to the summit of Kinder Scout, raising lots of money for UpsnDowns so that we could organise and enjoy a charity day out.

We look forward to the next get together soon.
