Henry’s Play Day for brave youngster

The city’s biggest children’s centre, 360 Play, is to hold a fund raising event to help raise funds for The Henry Allen Appeal.

The appeal is 360 Play’s official charity for 2013 and the Henry’s Play Day event on October 9 will enable visitors to take advantage of some special entry prices, with all proceeds being donated to the charity.

The centre will open from 6pm to 8pm on the day and the cost of entry will be just £3 for children and £1 for adults. All the usual facilities will be available, so it will be a great opportunity for families with young children to have a fun evening out while at the same time helping to support a great cause.

Henry, aged four, was diagnosed with Stage Four Neuroblastoma two years ago and every single form of treatment available in Great Britain has been exhausted.

Now the final hope is for the Bletchley tot to go abroad for pioneering treatment in Germany or America – at a cost of £500,000.

“The Henry Allen Appeal is our official charity for 2013 and the Henry’s Play Day event is just one of the ways 360 Play is helping to support the appeal,” explained the company’s business development manager Anne Basketfield.

“We are offering families with young children the chance to visit for a very special entry price which will hopefully attract good numbers, with all money raised on the night going to the appeal.

“It will be a great, fun evening for a great cause and we hope lots of families will support the event.”
