A SUPPORT charity in Flixton is hosting a ‘family fun fest’.

The afternoon is to raise funds for The Toy House, a charity whose purpose is to support the families of Trafford, and support the community to ensure children and adults develop to their true potential.

Guests can enjoy afternoon tea, games, prizes and activities. There will also be a fancy dress competition and parade for the children.

The Freemasons of Urmston are supporters of Toy House, and have given free use of their venue for the day. The event will be held in the grounds of Urmston Masonic Hall in Westbourne Road on September 17, 11am until 3pm and entry is just £1 per family.

If you require further information or would like to make a donation to the Family Fun Fest call: 0161 746 8185 or email: email@thetoyhouse.org

The charity relies on donations from local businesses, groups and the general public to keep running and has recently had to extend their opening hours to the public due to demand of their services.

They run play sessions throughout the week where there is a sensory Room where visitors of all ages can access a peaceful space to relax in. The Toy House also supports local schools, nurseries and specialist groups in closed sessions.
