Dream Night at Colchester Zoo 2017



We are delighted to let you know that Colchester Zoo has invited EACH to attend Dream Night 2016, which is to be held at the zoo on Friday 9th June between 6pm and 9pm. 

On this very special night Colchester Zoo is closed to the public but open especially for families from local children’s hospices to allow your children the greatest chance to have a truly special and memorable evening. This event is open to all families whose children currently access EACH care services, across all 3 hospice localities.

On the evening of the 10th, the proposed programme will include; feeding elephants, giraffes and penguins, handling bugs and snakes as well as face painting and a range of other entertainment and surprises! 

Families will be required to make their own travel arrangements but Colchester Zoo is generously providing entrance, refreshments and entertainment as well as their staff volunteering their time on the night.

We have a fixed allocation of tickets for 2017, and we ​have sent out a letter with more information and explaining the ticket allocation criteria.The deadline for receipt of ticket applications is Friday 5th May.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.

  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
