Christmas can be a difficult time for the families that we support; so being able to offer some fun festive treats was a real pleasure. This has been made possible by Ice Angel Events as they have selected us as their charity partner for this season.
The partnership started in style as the Ice Angels put on their annual show in line with the City’s Christmas lights being switched on. This was a free event for the public and spectators were asked to make a donation. The children we have supported over the years were invited to take part and several children skated at the beginning and end of the one hour show. The children were thrilled to be involved and were on the ice with Santa and Mrs Claus as well as the Ice Queen, the Ice Prince and Princess from Upon a Wish.
The team at Upon a Wish have also supported us throughout the year and asked people to make a donation as they offered photo opportunities. In total Upon a Wish collected £185.38 and the Ice Angels collected a further £30.65. Thank you to everyone who made a donation.
The Ice Angels have also provided each child from Jeremiah’s Journey with a free skate pass that allows them to get on the ice as often as they’d like, they’ve also had an invitation to have breakfast with Santa and the chance to attend an extra special evening at the Ice Ball on 21st December with some special guests from Upon a Wish – the Ice Princess and the Ice Queen!
We are so grateful to the Ice Angels. They have made a lot of children extremely happy! Christmas can be such a difficult time of year and parents have told us how excited their children are about attending some of the events that have been so generously offered.
We are looking forward to a sparkly season with the Ice Angels.
