The LolliBop event is getting ever closer so I thought I would keep you posted about the latest news.
LolliBop have teamed up with the Sparks Charity as their charity partner for 2014 to support them in their vital work raising funds to help finance medical research effecting babies.
Surprisingly every day 1 in 30 babies are born in the UK with a condition that will impact their life, Sparks Charity are working hard to change this. I was very fortunate my children my children were born healthy, youngest did worryingly have the cord wrapped round his neck twice so it was only thanks to the skill of the midwives during the delivery that he was luckily okay.
The partnership enables Sparks Charity to continue spreading the message and gaining additional support for their valuable contribution to the health and welfare of babies. They will be hosting a number of stands over the duration of the event so you can get involved in learning more about Sparks Charity and have some fun in the process. Hopefully the collaboration will see a healthy increase in donations to fund their next treatment or fingers crossed find a cure to stop some of these devastating conditions destroying lives.
Separately there will be a new book area, LolliBooks. My boys love books so I am sure we will make a beeline to this section featuring Ladybird and Puffin it will include lots of special activities to immerse children into literacy. There are plans for an interactive puppet show, some possible pranking from the author of Diary of Dennis the Menace and lots and lots of storytelling. There will also be a Lollilibrary so your children can get some rest from the busy event, put up their feet and get lost in a good book.
