Children with rare conditions enjoy a free day out at Drayton Manor Park

Families of children affected by rare conditions have been treated to a fun day at Drayton Manor Park.

The attraction threw the bash for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity after it smashed its £3.65milliom Star Appeal target.

The fundraising effort will help create a Rare Disease Centre for children – the first of its kind in the UK.

Kirsty White, corporate partnerships officer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to Drayton Manor Park for joining in with our Star Appeal celebrations and organising an incredible day out for some of our brave patients and families living with a rare or undiagnosed condition.

“We’re absolutely delighted that our £3.65million Star Appeal has recently reached target and it was wonderful to see our children, who are living with some of the most complex conditions imaginable, enjoying themselves at Drayton Manor.

“We all had a truly memorable day.”
