The FCT children commented; “This was the best one ever”!
Some of the FCT familes arrived on Friday evening and after having a wonderful meal, retired to bed ready for their exciting trip on the Saturday.
Saturday morning the remaining families arrived and checked into the hotel. We boarded the coaches and had a guided tour of some of the sights of London whilst on our way to the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
The show “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” was superb and the children and parents had a meet and greet with the cast afterwards, this was organised by Nick Skilbeck (Musical Supervisor) who is related to the wife of Denny Wise.
The excitement was not over yet as the theatre trip was followed by our Christmas Party, where some very excited children received presents from Santa Claus and our special guest Hannah Barrett from the X Factor!
On Sunday morning the Santa bikers arrived, with more presents for all the children.
Sincere gratitude goes to Hannah Barrett, Edward Thomas & Sons, Mathew & bikers, the Novotel (London West) and all the FCT helpers.
Looking forward to another exciting Theatre Trip & Christmas Party and other events in 2014, our 10th Anniversary Year!
