What parents had to say

"My children have thoroughly enjoyed their day and learned plenty in very non-conventional ways. The staff and researchers are wonderful. A great opportunity for kids to do something different and valuable.”

“I think this is a fabulous event. Volunteers very helpful. All well organised. Fun and educational for the children. We shall keep on coming back! Thanks to all involved.”

“Every year gets better and better (in terms of organisation and range of activities) and we always look forward to it. Whilst simultaneously helping to support research we get a pleasant afternoon full of interesting activities.”
