Princesses and Superheroes test their knowledge to help children’s wishes come true

Molly Ollys, Enchanted Tea Room

Families are being invited to don their thinking caps for a fun Enchanted Family Quiz Night in aid of a local children’s charity.

The event, on May 31st, is hosted by Enchanted Tea Room in Leamington, and will include a Disney-themed quiz as well as the chance to meet and greet favourite princesses – all in aid of Molly Ollys, based in Warwick.

The charity was established in 2011 by Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw following the death of their eight-year-old daughter Molly from a rare kidney cancer.

It works to support children with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families and help with their emotional wellbeing as well as providing wishes and donating therapeutic toys and books to both children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK.

The therapeutic toy lion called Olly The Brave who has his own Hickman line and a detachable mane which helps to explain and normalise the effects of chemotherapy. These form part of an Olly The Brave pack that has now been handed out to more than 70 hospitals or health centres, along with a set of books from the charity’s exclusive Olly The Brave series.

The award-winning Enchanted Tea Room provides tailor-made family-friendly events in fairytale and princess-themed party and pamper rooms in Bath Street.

Proprietor Kelly Iles, said: “At Enchanted we grant free wishes for any child that needs us and these have included hundreds of children locally and across the UK, from a child wishing to meet their favourite princess to end-of-life goodbye parties and zoom calls to hospitals.

“We have also granted many local children their final wishes with a full princess funeral escort and singing them their favourite songs as we know how important these moments are to families.”

She added: “Working alongside Molly Ollys, who grant so many wishes, we realise the importance of them and creating the perfect memories for families. It is a charity that always inspires us in everything they do so supporting them in fundraising is essential to keep granting wishes for those children and families who need them most.”

The event starts at 5.30pm and tickets, which are £10 per person, are available by emailing: sophie@mollyolly.co.uk or calling 01926 698735.

Rachel Ollerenshaw said: “Molly Ollys are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the family quiz night at Enchanted Tearooms. It will be fun to do a family-focused event at a place that is very special to a lot of families that the charity has supported. Kelly and all the team at Enchanted always go above and beyond to make every visit there magical.”
