The Brick Festival team have announced a new partnership with the Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
Brick Festival Events has been running awesome LEGO® themed events since 2018, starting from a single venue in Milton Keynes, growing to run 10 shows during 2022, with more venues planned for next year and beyond.
From the next event in Milton Keynes on 21st May, each Brick Festival will hold dedicated activities to raise vital funds for this UK based children’s charity. These will run in addition to the fantastic selection of other free activities that visitors can look forward to.
“As someone that has been supporting charitable causes all of my life, it was very important to see us sharing this great opportunity with the right charity partner.
We wanted to ensure that any partner shared our same values, and it didn’t take long to realise how much of a great match Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity and Brick Festival events are.”
Mike Freeman, Brick Festival Organiser
Roald Dahl believed in the importance of children and in helping them overcome life's toughest challenges. He was one of the world’s most imaginative and loved storytellers and he left a marvellous legacy - Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.
Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, which provides specialist nurses and support for seriously ill children, was established in 1991 by Roald Dahl’s widow Felicity, shortly after his death. Today, there are currently 82 Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses caring for over 24,000 seriously ill children across the UK. Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses are a vital lifeline to the children and their families, supporting them clinically and emotionally.
The charity supports children and young people affected by complex, lifelong illnesses that are under-funded, under-resourced and under-recognised including epilepsy, rare diseases, sickle cell anaemia, and neuromuscular conditions. The charity also supports children and young people as they move from children's to adult services.
If you would like to help us to provide every seriously ill child with a Roald Dahl Specialist Nurse, visit a Brick Festival Event during 2022.
