On Saturday 16th June, Starlight’s Sky High Escape gave 250 guests affected by serious illness a day filled with flights, face painting and much more in the Northamptonshire countryside.
Our guests took to the skies in style and enjoyed helicopter rides along with a variety of games and entertainment on the ground! From rides in a vintage bus and an army lorry, to arts and crafts and metal detecting, there were activities for all to enjoy. We had special visits from the police and fire brigade, as well as our very own Captain Starlight.
It was so refreshing for us all to get out as a family and make memories. It will definitely be a day we won’t forget.
All of this excitement makes for hungry guests, so we had a delicious BBQ, ice cream and cakes kindly baked by local volunteers to keep our guests nourished and refreshed!
Sam, mum of Brandon who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy told us:
“It was the most enjoyable day we’ve ever had, the lads absolutely loved it, especially the helicopter ride. It was amazing from start to finish.
We struggle to get both boys out and about due to them both being in wheelchairs, but everyone was so helpful – thank you SO much. It was so refreshing for us all to get out as a family and make memories. It will definitely be a day we won’t forget.”
