Children with cancer and their families have been given a free weekend at Butlins by a Northamptonshire charity.

The ​Christmas Fantasy Break saw NCTLC Trust, based in Earls Barton, take a large group to Butlins Skegness, in a trip that was worth £9,000.

All families were also given two gifts from the charity’s successful toy appeal, with the remainder given to NCTLC children unable to make the trip.

Charity founder Janet Walker-Smith said “A massive heartfelt thank you to all the companies who helped us. The smiles on all the children’s faces, and their families, were priceless and said it all.”

After a luxury coach journey from Northamptonshire, all the families were given a hamper.

The entire trip saw ice skating, karting, VIP seats for the Aladdin Rocks show, bowling and a four-course meal, which was followed by the arrival of Santa Claus, who gave out the toy appeal gifts.

NCTLC Trust said it would like to thank: Liam Warren & Maurice Young of Rough N Ready Gym, David Williams IFA, Derek Redmond, Steve Dudson and team from Ambivent,

WM Morrison’s Swan Valley, Northamptonshire Police, Nationwide Building society Results Global, Country Lion and the Co-op.
