Families kicked off their year with some panto fun during a special performance of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The show was for children, young people and families receiving care and support from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) at The Treehouse, in Ipswich.
It took place at Kesgrave Community Memorial Hall on Sunday, 8th January. Twenty families – 80 people in total – enjoyed an afternoon of madcap fun and giggles, courtesy of touring children’s pantomime company Chaplin’s Pantos.
“Our families had great fun and thoroughly enjoyed themselves,” said EACH Event and Groups Co-Ordinator Lucy Hynes.
“They loved the audience participation, singing and dancing, and it was a brilliant start to 2023.”
As well as the entertainment on stage, families received goody bags and were able to tuck into snacks to keep them going. They sang Happy Birthday to one of the children and were treated to music from EACH Music Therapist and Team Leader Ray Travasso and daughter Lilianna.
EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions. As well as The Treehouse, it has two other hospices – The Nook, near Norwich, and at Milton, near Cambridge.
