It was an evening of magical festive fun at the beginning of the month, as supported and bereaved families came together at Hampton Court Palace ice rink for a spin on the ice!

After not being able to take place last year, this very popular event made a welcome return, and families certainly made the most of having some exclusive time on the rink in front of the beautiful setting of the Palace.

This event is extra special as it’s accessible to all – from buggies to manual and electric wheelchairs – everyone could be whizzed around the ice by the super speedy marshals! And for those not ever so steady on their feet there were perfect penguin pals on hand to help balance and glide across the ice.

As well as the exclusive use of the ice rink and with additional marshals on hand to ensure everyone could safely experience a lap or two round the rink, families were also treated to some lovely food and drink to warm them up and refuel and have a chance to catch up with one another.

This was all possible thanks to one of our super corporate partners Novacyt who sponsored the event, a huge thank you to them, Hampton Court Palace ice rink, Arena Group and Miss Polly Café on Ice.
