Fun-filled activity day at Lodge Hill

Around 160 people enjoyed an activity day held for children under the age of 18 with disabilities, their family and friends at Lodge Hill on Friday August 24.

Set within 32 acres of woodland near Pulborough, the day included the re-launch of fabulous fully accessible bikes which were donated to Lodge Hill by Lyn Aaron-Ferrigno who headed up the charity ‘We Cycle Too’ at Brooklands Park in Worthing.

These bikes were incredibly popular and much fun was had by all who enjoyed the freedom they bring while being able to cycle around the camp site on what was a lovely sunny day.

With the weather on side, the outdoor activities were incredibly popular throughout the day, including sno-tubing, woodland crafts with Forest Knights, go-karting, archery, abseiling, Freedom through Fun, arts and crafts and enchanted garden story-telling. As always, a delicious lunch was provided which included a BBQ!

One parent said: “These days at Lodge Hill are some of our happiest and most relaxed in the whole year. They make me feel like my kids have advantages as well as disadvantages."

One of the carers who attended said: “We will 100 per cent be returning for another fun-filled day!”
