The Fostering Network is inviting fostering families to come to a discounted day out to Merlin attractions on Sunday 6 October to celebrate the sons and daughters of foster carers.
Sons & Daughters: Celebrating the foster family is the Fostering Network’s annual campaign to celebrate the phenomenal contribution which the children of foster carers make to foster care. Every year in October, fostering services across the UK run events and activities in their local areas to show their appreciation for everything that these children and young people do.
We have teamed up with Merlin to offer this discounted day out during our Sons & Daughters campaign so these young people can have a treat in recognition of the amazing work that they do throughout the year. The specially discounted attractions in this offer are:
• Alton Towers
• Thorpe Park
• Warwick Castle
Lucy Peake, director of external affairs at the Fostering Network, said: “Every day we hear about the incredible sons and daughters of foster carers who make such a positive difference to the lives of children in care. By teaming up with Merlin we hope that we can contribute towards them having a lovely family day out, and feeling valued for their important role in fostering.”
We hope that fostering services will treat their foster families to this fun day out, or foster carer members can purchase their own tickets. Tickets must be booked in advance by calling Merlin and quoting a special code. Find out how to book your tickets (members only).
