EGGS-TRAORDINARY things are happening at Jump In Trampoline Park in Leamington this Easter – and visitors are being invited to get involved.
Eagle-eyed jumpers who go to the venue between Saturday, April 13th and Sunday, April 28th could bag themselves a mystery prize.
Numbered plastic eggs will be hidden around the arena throughout the fortnight and anyone lucky enough to find one can then exchange it across the counter for a surprise gift. Prizes include Easter eggs – of all sizes – and Jump In golden tickets.
And those people for whom Easter is a chocolate-free zone, won’t miss out either.
Forming a backdrop to the fun will be the theme of hit movies The Greatest Showman and soon-to-be-released Dumbo. Extra activities will include a circus skills corner and special circus games for toddlers.
The eggs-citing event, which will also adopt a Greatest Showman theme, is raising money for Warwick-based charity Molly Olly’s Wishes through the sale of raffle tickets.
Visitors will have the chance to purchase tickets to win one of two great weekly prizes of a giant chocolate egg.
The charity was founded by Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw in 2011, the same year that their eight-year-old daughter Molly lost her fight against a rare form of kidney cancer.
Since then it has helped more than 1,500 children from newborn to age 18 by granting individual wishes, which could take the form of special equipment, alternative therapy or a special occasion or day out.
Mascot of the charity is a therapeutic toy lion called Olly The Brave who has his own Hickman line and a detachable mane that helps to explain and normalise the hair loss that comes with many types of chemotherapy. These form part of an Olly the Brave pack that has now been handed out to 40 hospitals across the UK along with a book, based on Olly The Brave’s journey from diagnosis to treatment.
There are now three books in the series, all written and illustrated by local author Diane Maybey. The latest instalment, Olly The Brave and the Wibbly Wobbly Tummy, was released on World Book Day earlier this month. (March 7th)
Rachel Ollerenshaw said: “Molly Olly’s Wishes are delighted to be chosen by Jump In as their charity partner for the Easter Egg Hunt. As a small charity it is really important for us to raise awareness as well as funds so that we can reach more families that need our support and to ensure our fundraising continues to enable the help. It can make a real difference to children and their families facing extremely challenging times. “
