Eggtastic Escape gives children a hoppy Easter!

40 seriously ill children and their families joined Starlight for a choctastic Easter party at The Roof Gardens in Kensington, London.

The children and their families played giant games, had their faces painted and goofed around with Captain Starlight. Starlight Ambassador and Blue Peter presenter Lindsey Russell and Cbeebies presenter Katie Thistleton also joined the party and got stuck into all the activities including the giant conga!

It was an amazing day. The kids were smiling from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. There was such a great atmosphere with so much to do – Maisie and her brother Hayden spent ages on the dance floor! It really provided us with a chance to forget everything we’ve been through and just let our hair down for three hours!

The highlight of the party was the Easter egg hunt led by the Easter bunny through the beautiful gardens. Within minutes all the chocolate eggs had been found – much to the delight of the children!

This is the fourth year that The Roof Gardens have hosted the Easter Escape and we’re incredibly grateful to them for their ongoing support.
