The Kings Ferry, the UK's leading coach hire operator, teamed up with Merlin Entertainments to offer the children at Demelza House a fantastic day out at Chessington World of Adventures Resort.
On Sunday 2nd September, 20 families set off for an action packed day at Chessington, aboard a luxury coach supplied by The Kings Ferry and with free entrance tickets, kindly donated by Merlin Entertainments.
The families were given the opportunity to explore the theme park, taking in everything from the new SEA LIFE Centre experience, featuring sharks, rays and parrot fish, to the exciting 'Trail of the Kings' with lions, tigers and gorillas. For the daring few – rollercoaster rides and fast-moving attractions were the highlight of the day.
"It was a great pleasure to take these 20 children and their families to Chessington for a special day out." commented Danny Elford, Commercial Director at The Kings Ferry.
"Offering parents and carers a bit of respite, and seeing so many happy faces at the end of the day made it an extremely rewarding experience. We're proud to have played a part in this wonderful event."
Suzie Gildon, Business Development Manager from Merlin Entertainments agreed: "Providing these children and their families with a fun-filled day out at one of our premier theme parks is something we're extremely proud of – it really was a great day for all of us."
Demelza House in Sittingbourne, Kent, supports children and young people (0-19) who are not expected to reach adulthood, and offers support to their families.
