Children enjoyed a day of animal antics during a special trip to Jimmy’s Farm and Wildlife Park.
The event was organised for 13 siblings attached to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
They were either bereaved or those with a brother or sister receiving care at The Treehouse, in Ipswich.
EACH Groups and Events Co-ordinator Lucy Hynes said: “The children had a wonderful day.
“They loved meeting the animals, from mammals, reptiles and rare breeds to fish, birds, tortoises and ferrets.
“They also loved playing in the woodland, building dens and bouncing on the huge inflatable pillow.
“They had a lovely time and it was great being involved in such a fun and action-packed day.”
EACH runs sibling days during every school holiday.
They allow siblings to come together, have fun and make friends in a safe environment.
On this occasion, the children ranged in age from four to 13 and were from Suffolk and North Essex.
They met at Jimmy’s Farm, in Wherstead, at 10am on Tuesday (19th April) and were picked up by their parents at 3pm.
