Scotland Outdoor Activities Family Day 2020

Saturday 1 August 2020 Fordell Firs Family Days

We’re hosting a fun-filled outdoor activity day at Fordell Firs in Fife, for families and young people living with a brain tumour.

There’ll be lots of group activities to try, including; roasting marshmallows over an open fire, archery and rock climbing. All activities are accessible for all and supported by trained staff - 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

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.
