Thank you & Merry Christmas!

For the past 12 months, Little Hiccups has been taken under the wing of Strata Homes who have been fundraising for us. We are pleased and proud to announce that through their year-long hard slog of The Major Series, climbing mountains, jumping out if planes and the much nicer Bake Off, Go Karting and Bowling they have managed to raise us a massive


Everyone at Little Hiccups is so overwhelmed and grateful for everyone that has raised money for us. This will truly help us to take Little Hiccups to another level. 

Thank you!

Christmas Adventures

So December brought us back to Sundown Adventureland to kick off Christmas in style. Every year we make an annual trip here and each year is bigger and better than the one before. This year we again had over 100 people attending, many of whom have joined us year on year for this festive trip.

It was a cold but dry day. About as perfect weather-wise you can get for a December trip and all the families that attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves despite the cold. It must be said as well that the organisation and effort put in by Sundown has improved year on year and this year was by far the most efficient yet. All the Hiccups families met up for the Christmas ride around noon and for our annual group photo. The elves on the ride along with the Hiccups Directors helped with the wheelchairs which allowed every child the opportunity to ride the magic ride and to meet the Big Man himself at the end.

Sundown have also continued to expand the park and this year the Wooden Fort was completed after a period of renovation. There was a large castle with swings and seesaws that managed to entertain the children for some time. And I think one of the favourite things about Sundown are the lights that come on when dusk falls. It sets the Christmas atmosphere beautifully and is truly a wonderful start to the Christmas festivities.

"Thank you so much for organising this."

"Thanks Little Hiccups for such a wonderful day at Sundown. We really enjoyed it! Same again next year!"

"Thank you we have had a fantastic day!!"

"Thank you so much. We made lots of memories that will last forever xx"

"What a team! Thanks for looking after us today. X"

"Great day today as always even though I got us lost on the way!! Thanks to the Little Hiccups team for organising hope everyone had fun"

"Had a great day and the Santa ride was just beautiful - Emily did some brilliant looking at all the lights. Thanks little hiccups! Xxx"

"Thank you for a wonderful day!! Lots of fun as always."

"Lovely day at Sundown thanks for organising"


A more fun side of fundraising!

Molton Brown is a sensory experience that's actually disguised as a night of fundraising and it's becoming a firm annual fixture on our social calendar. Who, after all, can turn down a night of pampering? It really is VIP treatment - something that you would normally only see on TV. 

The experience of having a shop open exclusively for you just before Christmas and which allows 
you access to wander and sample all the delights of the Molton Brown products is truly wonderful. 

The Molton Brown store team are an excellent bunch who really do look after us. On the night we enjoyed drinks, nibbles and an arm massage. With the ticket price of only £20 we also received a voucher to use in store and a Goody Bag worth £20! It really is excellent value. I can't believe such a fun relaxing evening is actually fundraising. I'm never running 10k again if this is the way forward.

The total amount raised will be available soon!
