The team behind the LolliBop festival – Broadwick Live and Live Nation – have announced their partnership with Sparks, the leading children’s medical research charity.
LolliBop, the UK’s biggest kids festival, takes place at Hatfield House, and includes hundreds of engaging activities, interactive zones and big name performances all aimed the under 10s. And now families will also have the opportunity to make a life-changing difference to other children by simply having fun.
Festival director, Gareth Cooper said: “LolliBop is a fantastic family day out and we’re delighted that this new partnership with Sparks will enable us to communicate some really important messages about the great work they do, as well as hopefully raising lots of money for this great cause along the way.”
Sparks will host interactive stands and exciting events each day to add to the mini-festival goer’s experience such as a treasure trail, celebrity bake-off and a chance to find out more about the science behind their research.
Each year, less than £10 per child in the UK is spent on research into child health. Every day 1 in 30 babies are born in the UK with a condition which may affect them for life. Sparks raises money to fund pioneering children’s medical research to get this to change.
Zillah Bingley, Sparks’ Chief Executive, said: “We’re really excited to be part of Lollibop this year. As well as providing some fantastic fun activities for children, support through the festival can help us to fund another ground-breaking medical project. Together we can move closer to funding cures or treatments for some of the most devastating conditions that turn a child and family’s life upside down.”
