Northern Ireland Family Day 2020

Tuesday 7 July 2020 Todd's Leap Activity Centre Family Days

We'll be returning to Todds Leap for our Northern Ireland Family Day. The day will be filled with fun outdoor activities including archery, a climbing wall and even a giant swing! 

All activities are supported by trained staff and you can get involved in as much or as little as you like. You’ll also have the chance to meet other families who understand and get to know our Children and Families Team.

Our Family Days are held across the UK to give your family a relaxed and supportive experience, with others who understand. So if you or your child (0-18) is living with a brain tumour, come and join us for an outdoor adventure.

What’s more, we understand that time together is priceless. So our Family Days are price-less. There’s no charge for attending, and lunch, snacks and drinks are all provided.

Book your space today

Family Days strengthen our family’s bond. When we share activities together it forms strong, emotional ties in our family helping us adapt to the health struggles we’ve faced in the past and in our daily life.

Please, try not to worry about…

  • Money. The day is free to attend and lunch will be provided free of charge.
  • Not making friends. We guarantee you will, every family who attends is in a similar boat and understands your situation so you’re sure to make friends. Plus, our friendly team are there to help too.
  • Fatigue. You’ll be surrounded by people who understand and if there’s anything you or your family don’t want to do, or if you just want some time to relax, that's 100% okay!
  • Not being good at the outdoor activities. This is a relaxed space of supportive peers where it’s the taking part and having fun that counts.
