Children and parents alike rose to the challenge and were left on a real high after enjoying a fun-filled night of climbing action. The special event was hosted by Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich for families supported by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
Nearly 30 youngsters, mums and dads had the centre to themselves and, after burning off lots of energy, they were treated to a spread of food. During the session they conquered fears, taking on dozens of climbing challenges, with some plucking up the courage to take the leap of faith.
Lucy Hynes, EACH’s Groups and Events Co-ordinator at The Treehouse, said: “It was such a successful night and our heartfelt thanks go to Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich.
“The team couldn’t have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful and it was very kind and generous for them to invite families along and give us the use of their wonderful centre free of charge – not to mention putting on such a delicious buffet.
“Everyone had a fabulous time and it was a perfect opportunity for families to have a fun, relaxed evening, meet others and learn new skills.
“We’re extremely grateful and everyone went home with big smiles on their faces.”
The event was for bereaved families and also for those with children currently receiving care and support at The Treehouse.
Clip ‘n Climb Ipswich Director Mark Patterson said: “What a fantastic, humbling yet successful evening.
“Our staff were blown away by the positivity of everybody involved in this session and it’s something we hope to repeat on an annual basis.”
