Dream Night at Chester Zoo

A huge thank you to Chester Zoo for supplying enough tickets to allow all of our families have an amazing evening at the zoo. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for our families to be shown around the zoo with their very own Safari Guide. Our families were treated to a picnic tea and refreshments throughout the evening. Brave families were also given the opportunity to fly high above the Lion Enclosure in a cherry picker!

Save the Family could not exist without the tireless work of our volunteer fundraisers. In total over £3000 was raised! Every penny will go to support homeless families in our community.

Chester has definitely got talent!!

Chester’s First Health and Beauty Expo!


 

What a day!! Over 500 people attended our first Health and Beauty Event at Chester Racecourse! The day kicked off with an amazing talk from BBC Breakfast’s Louise Minchin and continued throughout the day with seminars, demonstrations and tutorials focused on Health and Beauty. All this lead up to Save the Families first Young Make-Up Artist of the Year competition. The competition was won by 14 year old Mia Smith-Roberts! The competion was judged by Instagram sensations and influencers Alisha Heap and Jasmin Archer-Jones. The event was hosted entirely by Save the Family volunteer staff  with the help of Chester Racecourse Company’s Project 1000 volunteers and raised almost £3000. These funds will go to help homeless families through a really difficult period in life.

The Sensory Garden Opening

Wow, what a day!! After months of design, then many hours of hard work we are proud to say that on the 23rd of November 2018, we finally opened the Sensory Garden. Our dream would never have become a reality without funding and the hard-work of our Corporate Volunteers. They worked for many hours along side our ground staff to produce an amazing space for our residents, staff and volunteers to enjoy for many years to come.
