Charities Arrange Family Fun at Safari Park
Adopted children and their families enjoyed a day of fun and adventure at West Midlands Safari Park last week.
More than 40 families were invited to enjoy the Safari Park, Bewdley, as a way of encouraging them to share experiences and make new friends. The special event was jointly organised by three children’s charities who are also independent adoption agencies in the Midlands; After Adoption, Barnardo’s Adoption Midlands and Adoption Focus. The funding was through contributions from the agencies, the families and with a generous discount provided by the safari park.
Barrymore James, Head of Service at After Adoption, said, “It was a great experience for everyone involved. We know that adoptive parents and their children really benefit from meeting others who have similar experiences, so events like this are invaluable.”
