Face painting, bouncy castles, children’s fair ground rides, go karts and donkey rides are all set to keep youngsters happy at Worden Park this Sunday.

The Long-Shaw Kids Fund, based in Leyland, is hosting its annual Family Fun Day and Spring Fair to raise money for the charity.

Trustee Donna Nicholson said: “We look after around 80 disabled children now and we’ve really expanded over the last few years.

“We started as a small group of parents in 2010 and this is the third time we’ve hosted the fun day at Worden Park.

“Entry is free but the bouncy castle, fun fair, go karts and stalls give us a percentage of their takings, so that’s how we raise money.

“Last year we collected £1,200 from the event, and the money goes towards days out for the children during their respite.

“They do things like indoor sky-diving, skiing, canoeing, art workshops, boat trips, and visiting places like the Sea Life Centre.”

There will also be attractions such as a tombola, lucky dip, coconut shy, football shoot out, and bric a brac stalls at the event, which takes place from 11am until 4pm.

The Long-Shaw Kids Fund also supports two respite centres, Long Copse in Chorley and one in Ormskirk.
