“Our Family Days provide the opportunity for families to have a fun day out together and connect with others who are going through similar experiences,” said Emma Percy, Children and Families Worker.
The free-to-attend Family Days have proven to be a lifeline for parents and families of children with brain tumours to gain support from others going through similar experiences.
With a host of activities available on the day, including climbing, archery, bushcraft, zip wire and crafts, it’s a great day out for children and grown-ups alike.
George, 14 and living with a brain tumour regularly attends Family Days in England and knows how important they can be: “It’s a break from the everyday and there’s always so much to do. We get to have so much fun together and I’ve made loads of friends on the days.”
Emma said: “We are delighted to be holding our next Family Day in Perthshire to help provide support to children and families in Scotland who are affected by brain tumours.
We know that receiving a brain tumour diagnosis can be a difficult and scary time and are dedicated to improving quality of life for everyone affected.”
