Puppets and pirates entertained children from Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service at Legoland.
More than 100 children and their families were treated to a day at the amusement park in Windsor.
They were greeted with a cast of entertainers, including stars of the Lego Movie, puppets from the Duplo Theatre and characters from the resort’s Pirates of Skeleton Bay stunt show.
Legoland has supported building work at the charity and offers days out for the children, with the most recent trip taking place on September 20.
The resort has pledged to create a sensory garden when the hospice is completed, using expert model makers and landscape designers.
Ingrid Fernandes, strategic development director at the park, said: “We are delighted that the children of Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service and their families were able to experience first-hand the magic of our resort and that we were able to add a little extra magic to their day.”
CEO and founder of the charity Fiona Devine said the ‘special moments’ families had at the park are ‘truly priceless’.
“The day with them was amazing and more families than ever were able to attend to this year,” said Fiona.
“Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who made each child and their families feel very special and created wonderful memories.”
